Upgrade firmware via backup/restore?


I need to update the firmware on a free load balancer.  I do understand that an 'upgrade' is possible.  Can I simply backup the existing 'free' configuration, install the new .ovf file, and restore?  Will it be that easy to perform an 'upgrade' to the latest version?

The Free LM has no option to do an in place firmware upgrade but should you re-deploy with a new LM and setup the network in the same manner then you can restore the configuration of the old one to the newly deployed unit making sure to restore both the VS configuration and the base configuration. you will need to backup and restore all certificates also.
