Upgrade of Virtual Appliance

LPAR2RRD and STOR2RRD Virtual Appliance can be upgraded in 2 ways.
  1. As standard package installation, follow steps above
  2. Directly from the GUI (it works only if v4.84+ already running on the appliance).
    • Open the GUI and navigate to item "LPAR2RRD"
    • Open sub item "Product upgrade"
    • Download LPAR2RRD installation package from sourceforge and upload it into the provided form
    • It is all, wait a bit and then reload the GUI, the upgrade will be done automatically on the background
    If this fails for any reason then use manual installation via command line.
