Hi all,

Just before the immenent release, i was wondering if there is a
preferred upgrade procedure.

For normal (i.e. iron) machines it is rebooting from cd/dvd and do an

However for virtual machines (XEN in my case) that's not an option.
Previously (11.1 -> 11.2) i used these staps:
- apply latest patches
(the un-escapable backup)
- remove all repositories
- add repo's with the new version
- upgrade zypper
- zypper dup
- restart vm

This used to work good in most cases, but left me with some unstartable
machines in other cases.

Hence my Q if there is a "official" preferred/recommended way of
upgrading virtual machines?
