Upgrading from a previous Release

If you are upgrading Coda from a previous release, do not run venus-setup again! Simply obtain the packages for your platform as indicated above. Then, shutdown venus by becoming root and issue the following command:

# vutil -shutdown

Next, install the binary packages following the installation instructions above. Make sure you have the appropriate kernel or module for *BSD systems or the correct module for Linux systems. The INSTALL.platform document available from the Coda ftp site will contain relevant notes about upgrading your system core components.

Once the new binaries are installed and the any necessary kernel updates are completed, you need to start the new venus for the first time by becoming root and typing:

# venus -init &

The -init flag is used to re-initialize the /usr/coda/venus.cache/.
