Upgrading to 5.1.0, and Latest OS Packages and Security updates via Command Line Interface

This is the recommended option for systems running 5.0 QuantaStor versions, and systems that may be out of date and require OS level package updates as well.

This procedure will upgrade the QuantaStor system to the latest software version, and also update all OS level packages to their latest versions as well, ensuring the system software has the latest security patches in place.

It is recommended that you schedule a downtime work window as a reboot is required for changes in the 5.1.0 upgrade. You will need to run these commands as a user with sudo access on the QuantaStor appliance, such as the default 'qadmin' account or as root if you have enabled direct root access.

NOTE: Schedule Downtime and disconnect client access before performing these steps.

Login to the CLI to perform a full upgrade to QuantaStor 5.1.0 along with the latest Security and OS packages.

To upgrade from 5.0 to 5.1 please use the below command as root to enable the new updater epository:

1. Enable the 5.1 and newer update repostiory

# sudo sed -i -e "s/ xenial/ quantastor-xenial/g" /etc/apt/sources.list.d/osnexus.list

2. Run the qs-upgrade command to install all system level updates and dependencies, this will bring all system level and security packages to the latest versions.

# sudo qs-upgrade
