Migration Package ASL 3.219 -> 4.008

The Migration Package for upgrading Astaro Security Linux 3.2X to V4 is available for download. We strongly recommend an installation with an Astaro Security Linux 4.0 Installation CD!

If this is not possible, please check the hardware compatibility list on docs.astaro.org before starting. Some (rare) hardware supported on ASL 3.2 will not be supported on ASL 4.0.
In then case you use a SCSI RAID controller, please contact support first.

Please enable WebAdmin access ('System->Settings') temporary from “ANY” because of the unfrequently case that the numbering of network cards will change. Please reset the WebAdmin access settings after a successful migartion to your needs.

After starting migration there is no way back! Your configuration will be converted to ASL 4.0, but all reports and logs will be deleted. A migration takes up to 20 minutes and includes four automatically reboots.

Please make sure you have a pure Astaro version of ASL (Astaro Logos, grey background,..) before starting the migration process with the files provided. In other cases please contact your vendor or Astaro support.

The following 10 files are required for a migration from ASL 3.219 to 4.008:

  • chunk.md5 387 bytes 
  • chunk.aa 10.485.760 bytes 
  • chunk.ab 10.485.760 bytes
