    Hi,

    is it possible to update my running HS VM with the 4.3. update?

    I tried downloading a Hyper-V image and replaced the hs_main file with the hs_main file from the Experte 4.3 (install Experte 4.3, look at the directory structure, you’ll find the firmware of the HS3 and HS4. unzip/unrar it…. unzip/unrar again.. see the /hs/ directory and find the hs_main file)

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for your reply.

    I Unzip/unrar the firmware.dat and the first INITRD.
    But i couldn unrar/unzip the second INITRD. So i didnt get a hs_main file out.

    By updating via the Expert Prog. the HS VM restarts again and again.

    Ronny, You can use Winrar to unpack the firmware.dat file and use 7-Zip to unpack the INITRD file.

    Hi,

    Unfortunatly after a manual update or via the Experte software the HS VM is stacked in infinite reboot loop, it reboots and reboots.

    The old backed up VMs a working fine.

    what can be the probleme?

    Make sure you ‘chmod 755 ‘ the files you copied. Otherwise it won’t have the execute permission and the HS will reboot infinite..

    Could you make a VMware image of the 4.3 by chance?

    Hello there, I made manual update HS4.2 to HS4.3, overwriting the files from /hs /lib /usr directories by the files from firmware file,

    upload firmware.dat to HS eg /home/temp directory

    a) rename firmware.dat file to firmware.zip
    b) extract INITRD file from firmware.zip (eg unzip)
    c) rename INITRD to INITRD.gz
    d) gzip -d INITRD.gz
    e) cpio -i < ./INITRD
    f) copy listed directories (/hs /lib /usr) to /
    g) restart HS, upload new project

    regards,

    you should copy directories and files (/hs /lib /usr) from unpacked initrd
    file, to / (root directory)
