Install & upgrade

There are two types of AKIPS images:

  1. The “Install & Upgrade ISO”:
    This ISO can be used for either a full clean installation, or an upgrade of an existing installation. An upgrade of the OS on a running system only takes a few minutes to complete.
  2. The “USB Install Memstick” is a file which can be burned to a USB stick for installing on physical hardware.

To upgrade an existing system with the “Install & Upgrade ISO”:

  1. Download the image to your PC
  2. Login to your AKIPS server as admin
  3. Go to the Admin -> System -> Update menu
  4. Choose the image to upload
  5. Click Start Upgrade
