Preparing to do our first 13 to 15 upgrade via backup/restore.
Should the newly installed, clean 15 system be activated before the restore happens?
I’m making sure all modules on both systems are current, with Backup at Edge on both.
General plan is to make a final backup of the old system, shut it down, reboot the new system with the IP of the old system, and restore.
In the past we used WinSCP to move the backup file to the local backup location on a new system and then CHMOD to 777. Once that is done it shows up in the Restore list on the new system and the restore completes. Does this still apply?
Any other caveats?
Edit to add: fwconsole ma upgrade backup --edge reports that the online version is the same as the installed version. Is Stable and Edge currently the same for backup or do I have the command incorrect?
