Migrate your Virtual Appliance to CentOS

In order to upgrade to Mutiny version 6, your Mutiny virtual appliance will need to have its core OS upgraded to our new CentOS release. New modules like IPAM are only available on the CentOS appliance.

If you have a physical appliance use THIS PAGE instead.
The easiest way to do this is to deploy a new CentOS virtual appliance and move your configuration to it.

The process is very straight forward and involves the following steps;

  • Upgrade your Fedora appliance to the last Fedora release  FC4mutinyBundle-5.1.12-4307.tgz.gpg 
  • Take a backup snapshot and download the backup to your PC.
  • Deploy the CentOS ova /support/downloads/mutiny-5.1.12-4307.ova
  • Use the console to put the new appliance on the network with a temporary address.
  • Shutdown your old virtual appliance.
  • Web onto the new blank Mutiny appliance with superadmin@mutiny.com and "password"
  • Upload your backup snapshot to your new appliance.
  • Restore your backup (Please allow adequate time for this to complete wait at least 15 minutes before any reboot)
  • Upgrade to the final 6.1 release CentOSmutinyBundle-6.1.0-5445.tgz.gpg
  • Upgrade to the Current release CentOSmutinyBundle-latest.tgz.gpg
  • Apply for a replacement licence, your existing licence will run for a further 7 days.
  • The last but one step is to perform a reset polling on the mutiny node with option [recalculate thresholds] as this will take into account the changes in the core OS.
  • Finally, turn back on weekly backups.
