        I would also have usage for that, AND in addition:
        switch to updated device of a cluster and switch back;
        so you have chance to test and switch back if nessessary...

        This, again, would have come in handy for many customers that Up2Dated to 9.108 recently.

        t's time to revive this discussion. I almost applied the 9.104 soft release to our in-house UTM. I was saved from having to re-install by actie User BB member gilipeled. It seems like this shouldn't be so hard. Backup the rpms that are being replaced. Backup any databases that are to be modified for the newer version, and you're done. I realize that a roll-back to 9.103 might have lost some reporting or quarantined emails, but that's easier to deal with than having to reload from ISO and losing ALL reporting and everything.

        Cheers - Bob

        CoyotePoint has a nice implementation of this.

        However, istm that the configs would be different in each version (still good for a upgrade failure though)

        Have reinstalled many after bad patches, not hoping to ever do it again.
        Could be as easy as snapshot way. Image running machine to extra partition or only the delta everytime after an initial image.
        Patch running, restart, allow failback to previous snapshot or multiple with one initial and multiple deltas to go back to.

        I need that, too. I already had that VPN-Client problem ... Second boot rom would have been the best solution! And what happens if my firewall in USA would have a problem??? I would appritiate that.

        I strongly recommend Astaro Linux Core stored in ROM/Flash rather than Hard-disk, because I lose some pre-sales were about that in China and Hong Kong. In China, because of unstable electrical system always suddenly down, this will impact astaro hard-disk defective easily.

        Well I think pattern updates need to be included!! I just had my Astaro ASG die on me a few hours ago, and it happened RIGHT after a new pattern update was installed! Good thing I had my other router on standby for this exact case.

        Also, funny thing is, when I went to the Astaro forums to report it, they're no longer up.... Wonder if they got hit by their own update bug?? NG

        Hi Bob, yes it is I have to support Europe, Asia and the USA... and I do not want to work 24h when I have to do some troubleshooting.... so I am looking always to get a chance to be able to solve everything remote :-) In this case I have to call some to help me onside...

        Yes, this would make things a lot easier in case of such problems!
        I would appreciate an implementation of this request!!
