Linux upgrade from version 4 to 5 !!!

Hello all,

      I have a intranet server running red hat verison 4. I want that to be upgraded to version 5 and at the same time, I need to make sure that none of the data is deleted. What is the best way to do it. I knew , We can do a installer option which will save data under /home. Is there any other way I can do this by which I can say that all data under all of root filesystem ( / ) is safe ?. Thanks for any help.

Hi

 

 

With upgrade if all go fine you should not have any problem.

 

Although is highly recommended that you have a backup of your data.

 

 

Consider also have a image of the machine.

Thanks for the response. Is there any document or manual out there which explains how to go about upgrading the servers from a remote location. Appreciate any help as always.

Hi.

 

I don't have any documentation, you can find it easily in the net.

 

Although hi highly recommend that you do the upgrade thru  a console ( ILO for HP Servers ). This will prevent to lost access to the server.
