Preparing for the Upgrade
Before doing anything to prepare for the upgrade, back up your Avalon 4.0 installation.
The following instructions will work for any Avalon 4.0 installation that used Puppet as its source. This includes the portable VM Image Installation, the Vagrant Virtual Machine Installation, and the Manual Installation of Avalon Using Puppet.
Upgrading is fairly simple, and must be run as the root user from a bash prompt on the Avalon system. The process for this depends on which kind of installation you have.
Portable VM image:
- Open a terminal window from within the VM console, and type
su rootto become the root user. This will require the root password you provided the first time the system was booted.
- Vagrant virtual machine:
From within the original installer directory (from step 4 of the Vagrant Virtual Machine Image Installation Instructions), type
vagrant sshto log in as the vagrant user, then type
sudo -ito become the root user.
- Manual Puppet installed machine:
Log in and become root as you did in steps 1 and 2 of the Manual Installation of Avalon Using Puppet instructions.
Once you have a root prompt, proceed with the upgrade as follows:
