Upgrade Advice

Before performing an upgrade, visit System|Backup/Restore to make a backup of your configuration file.

DO NOT use the embedded webgui firmware upgrade if your XigmaNAS server has less than 512MB RAM, use livecd/usb for upgrade than.
If a firmware upgrade fails (Broken Pipe or Mount/Umount related errors, etc), the only solution is to re-install from scratch. This will delete all data on the OS disk. This has no effect on data-only drives, just data stored on the OS drive.
  • 512MB of RAM is the minimum system requirement for upgrading any Embedded version of XigmaNAS.
  • 2GB of RAM or higher is recommended for a better system performance.
  • If you use ZFS than 8GB ram is the minimum system requirement for some performance.

Backup Configuration

  1. Navigate to the System > Backup/Restore page
  2. In the “Backup configuration” area, click the “Download configuration” button
  3. When prompted by your computer, select Save, and a location on your computer to save the config file
Do not store the config file on your XigmaNAS storage drives but save it somewhere local in a safe place!
