QoreStor 7.3.0 - Installation Guide

Before you upgrade

Before upgrading your QoreStor instance, please review and follow the guidelines below:

  • Make sure that all backup jobs which use the QoreStor server as a target are paused for the duration of the upgrade.
  • Make sure that the QoreStor system has at least 1GB of free space on the root partition.
  • If the existing installation of QoreStor uses the default passwords for the UI admin login, qsservice user, or qsadmin user, then you must update these passwords before upgrading to QoreStor 7.3.0.
    • To update the UI admin login password, run /opt/qorestor/bin/user --setpassword --name admin.
    • To update the qsadmin user password, run passwd qsadmin.
    • To update the qsservice user password, run passwd qsservice.

    NOTE:When upgrading, if the installer discovers default passwords configured for any of the qsadmin, qsservice, or UI admin users, the installer exits and does not complete the installation.

  • There are some preliminary configuration steps that must be followed to prepare your DR Series for upgrade. Refer to Preparing your DR Series for migrationfor more information.
