So, how to proceed to do a safe upgrade? I’m trying this because some reason my system use high memory, keep low allow memory.

Hi! I was updating my old VyOS instances to the latest version with an intermediate step, try to update 1.1.8 to 1.2.0 first, and then to the latest(or to the latest 1.2.x and then to 1.3.x).

Worked for me when 1.2.2 was the latest, but think that will work as well.

Hi Kirillk, how are you?
Thank you so much, for your reply, I’ll try this, but on Vyos portal, don’t found 1.2.x versions, just 1.3, so I found a snapshot version, like vyos-1.2-snapshot-2019Q4-amd64.iso, is fit to use?
The configurations that I use in 1.1.8 will be compatible with new versions?

One thing I’ve found upgrading from 1.1.8 to 1.2.x is that the DHCP Server doesn’t seem to work at all after upgrading. Not sure why. The only way I was able to convert was to export the config file to external storage, do a fresh install of 1.2.4, and then reload the config file.

Obviously that means hand-migrating all crypto files, key files, etc from /config/auth as well.

And if you have any openvpn tunnels and you still want them to work, you should add “persistent-tunnel” to each interface stanza.

Hi corndog, how are you? thanks for your reply. We user just like a core router, with BGP peers and routing (static) for LAN customers.
But I’m worried, because the system is loading much ram memory and the idea was update system, to fix this issue, but not doing a new installation.
