[OpenAFS] Re: Upgrading An OpenAFS Server
Thu, 4 Apr 2013 13:50:41 -0700 (PDT)
Sorry for not being more specific. Yes, I'm upgrading a Debian/OpenAFS ser=
ver. Fortunately this is a hobby machine at home, not a production server =
with multiple high-end clients (that's my day job, with Windows ;)
I'm currently copying all my own data over to another server (whole differe=
nt system), in case I botch it. I've only done one OpenAFS install and con=
fig, and I remember it seeming like it was going to be a very painstaking p=
rocess but was pleasantly surprised that it was not so. Still, it's one of=
those things that "just works" at home, and aside from doing some basic us=
er and file management I haven't had to do much.
I remember having an issue with journaling, and I think I wound up turning =
that off on my filesystem. Another, a topic for another day perhaps.
P.S. Switched to plain text, hoping that it alleviates some of the text wei=
rdness I seem to get when posting on this forum.

If you build a second server you will not need any down time.=A0 You get
the second server working and vos move everything there.=A0 Then
shutdown or rebuild the first server.=A0 It makes sense to just upgrade
the first server and keep it.=A0 Then next time you want to upgrade it
is a lot less work.=A0 If you do it this way you will want to use Russ
