Re: Upgrading To 4.0 From Previous Versions **Important Information Before Upgrading**

Hi @fahlis 

Here are the three upgrade videos which went live today:

Upgrade Part 1

Upgrade Part 2

Upgrade Part 3

Part 3 is the one that you will find most interesting and coincidental to this conversation I think.

Thanks,

@DeclanOR 

Great guides, I just watched them. Perhaps you can do guides for CLI upgrade also?

As I have had various problems with the upgrade manager that ended up in a support case and in the end CLI upgrade, I think it would be great to share that with others in a video.

Keep up the good work

Hi @fahlis 

Thanks for the positive feedback. CLI is another possible addition yes. Upgrade Manager has improved substantially throughout recent releases however, so hopefully the need to rely on Cli has equally reduced. Definitely a great suggestion, so lets see how things progress. Thanks for viewing the videos - I take it you noticed the empty cluster issue I hit while recording also!? 

Thanks,

Re: Upgrading To 4.0 From Previous Versions **Important Information Before Upgrading**

I just did an upgrade from 3.7.7 to 4.0.1 that I had to get support involved because it failed thru the GUI and CLI.  After a few hours, and let support sleep on and get back to me the next day(VMs were still up). On the omnistack VM, there is .vcconfig file  The svssizeGB needs to be 108, mine was at 107 causing it to fail.   After that is changing that value and restarting svtfs on each one in the cluster that upgrade was able to successfully complete.  I thought I would share, as it might benifit someone else.
