VyOS 1.1 is EOL, please migrate to 1.2.

Dear Hagbard

Thank you for the feedback.
can you help with a link where i can get instruction to migrate to 1.2

i only see upgrade from 1.1.7 to 1.1.8 on vyos wiki


Janvier R.

Dependingon your config and how old it is, if you upgrade from 1.8 to 1.2, there are migration scripts included which would check and migrate your syntax. So, I suggest a stepwise upgrade until you are on 1.2 or if you want to start immediately with 1.2 and adjust your conifg manually, it would work too. As I mentioned, pretty much depends how complex your config is. There is also professional help available via to help with migrations.
