Upgrading to 5.8.5, and Latest OS Packages and Security updates via Command Line Interface

This is the recommended option for systems running 5.x QuantaStor versions on the Xenial Platform, and systems that may be out of date and require OS level package updates as well.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 5.8.5 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: This upgrade includes a Kernel upgrade and requires a reboot
NOTE: Schedule Downtime and disconnect client access before performing these steps.

Login to the CLI to perform a full upgrade to QuantaStor 5.8.5 along with the latest Kernel and Security and OS packages.

# curl -o /opt/osnexus/quantastor/bin/qs_upgrade.py packages.osnexus.com/packages/quantastor-bionic/scripts/qs_upgrade.py
# sudo /opt/osnexus/quantastor/bin/qs_upgrade.py --includeKernel=true

Once the install completes you will be running QuantaStor 5.8.5

Platform Upgrades from Xenial to Bionic will be available in a future release of QuantaStor.

Platform Upgrades via the qs-distupgrade command from QuantStor 4.x on trusty are enabled with the 4.7.2 release. please contact support@osnexus.com if you have any questions or need upgrade assistance.
