OS Conversion Software Upgrade

The 3.13.x to 3.16.3 software upgrade (P9L02-10563.rpm) provides a major upgrade of the underlying StoreOnce Operating System. This type of software upgrade is called an OS conversion upgrade. It differs from a typical StoreOnce software upgrade by using a separate, unique 3.13.x to 3.16.3 OS Conversion upgrade RPM file, and by requiring the user to perform an intermediary step to download and save, securely, an automatically generated saved_config.tgz file from the StoreOnce System before restarting the software upgrade process.
