    3. Power on
    4. copy mysqlbackup.zip
    5. unzip and run mysqlbackup
    6. Shutdown

    Deploy the new OVFs (can be done at the same time)
    • SQL 1.1
    • Search 1.1
    • Filr 1.1

    @SQL 1.1
    1. Copy VASTORAGE-Disc from SQL_1.0.1 to SQL_1.1 and attach as SCSI 1:0
    2. Create new disc for VAR (Logs) with SCSI 2:0

    4. Adjust CPU/memory/swap/etc to your demands
    5. Power on
    6. Do the upgrade and wait until it is finished
    7. Check if all services are running (@:9443)
    8. IMPORTANT: Create the same User and password for Filr-database access you had before (it ist NOT migrated!!!) in phpMyAdmin (@:9443)

    • Power on again (Order: 1.SQL, 2.Search, 3.Filr)
    • Delete the old 1.0.1 versions
