Re: [K12OSN] Upgrading from k12ltsp5 to 6



I guess I still have a little bit of M$ upgrade fever left in my system. I always like playing with the new features of the latest version. If there isn't a significant advantage in upgrading right now I will take your advice and hold off until I can do a new clean install. Many times on my desktop systems (linux) you just click upgrade and you have the latest OS with no strings attached (servers can be a different story sometimes though). I was just wondering if anybody had nice clean upgrades to talk about or if it was more of a chore than it is worth. Thanks for your insight.

Why do you want/need to upgrade now?  There's not a whole lot of 
difference, from a user perspective, from version 5 to version 6. 
Considering that there are only three months of school left, I would 
wait until summer and then do a new install of version 6.  If you need 
to, tar up /home and save it on another machine or some other media like 
a CD, etc., and then restore it once you have the new version installed. 
  Upgrading is posssible, in theory, but there always seem to be 
lingering problems, such that I just do new installs any more.

Are any changes going to overwrite anything in the /tftpboot folder (I have put a ton of other pxe images in there for misc stuff)? Do I need to back up and restore my named.conf and lts.conf? Do I need to download the cd's or can I use yum and if so, what command do I use? If anybody who has made the switch can give me some advice or things to plan / look out for it would be greatly appreciated.
