What's the right procedure to upgrade from ACS 5.1 to 5.3

Hi folks,

What would be the right procedure to upgrade ACS 5.1 to 5.3 ?

Our client needs to a smooth upgrade to the latest and greatest 5.3 version. The plan is use a backup made on 5.1 and install it on the new system.

Should the new system be running version 5.1 or I can start with 5.2 to save time for the upgrade?

I recommend the following

- Take a backup on ACS 5.1

- Clean install of ACS 5.3

- Install ACS 5.3 patch 2: this has some fixes for the upgrade process

- restore the backup of ACS 5.1. After restore process completes upgrade process will start

The patch 2 installation went OK, failing on the restore part.

The database file is 206 MB of size. Isn't it too much to pull over FTP?

ACS53/admin# restore DB_Backup-120320-1607.tar.gpg repository REPO

Restore requires a reboot to successfully complete. Continue? (yes/no) [yes] ?

% Failure occurred during request

And the FTP server doesn't report any error. The connection is made and closes:

20:53:43 192.168.1.160 [8]USER boss 331 0

20:53:43 192.168.1.160 [8]PASS - 230 0

20:53:52 192.168.1.160 [8]sent /DB_Backup-120320-1607.tar.gpg 226 0

20:53:52 192.168.1.160 [8]QUIT - 226 0

Any ideas ?
