Updating to NetTen v1.4 Final Release from NetTen v1.4 Beta Release

Important note:To install the final release of NetTen 1.4 you must install the final NetTen version and move the settings from the beta NetTen 1.4 to the final installation. This is to ensure a properly working NetTen system that takes advantage of the stability of the final release. The most visable change to the final version is that the NetTen preference file has become separate from the TenonPreferences file. This means that migrating to the final release of NetTen means re-entering all preference settings. The following instructions are taken from the NetTen 1.4 documentation that can be downloaded from a link on the NetTen beta web page.

There are five steps to migrating from one NetTen v1.4 to a freshly installed NetTen v1.4: Install new NetTen, export user accounts from old the NetTen, move stored mail, and re-set passwords. These steps must be executed in order and should result in a cloned NetTen installation.

Install NetTen

Follow the Installation instructions in section 3.2 to re-install NetTen, but ignore the instructions regarding adding new accounts, and adding DNS records since those will be preserved from the previous NetTen insallation.

Export Stored Content

In your active version of NetTen v.1.4, select "Export Stored Content" from the Storage menu. Enter a file name to call the stored content file (see figure below).

When you have entered a file name (e.g. "storedcont.1"), choose OK and NetTen will make the file.

Move Stored Mail and Backup

Since NetTen stores mail in the mail folder of your NetTen v1.4 folder, you will have to manually move this folder from the old NetTen folder to the freshly installed NetTen folder. Simply replace the mail folder in the new NetTen v1.4 folder with the mail from the old NetTen v1.4 folder.

Next, move the file in the NetTen v1.4/tenon/backups folder that you created in "Export Stored Content" to the NetTen v1.4/tenon/backups folder in the newly installed NetTen.

Import Stored Content

Start the newly installed NetTen v1.4 application while holding down the OPTION key. This will show you your NetTen preferences screen before NetTen starts up. Verify that all these settings are correct and select "Save". NetTen will then start up. Ignore the warning about your License number. Choose "Import Stored Content" from the Storage menu. You will be asked for the name of the file that you want to import from.

Enter the name of the file you created in 10.2.2 and moved in 10.2.3. Choose OK and NetTen will begin importing from the file.

Re-enter passwords

Now that you have your user accounts and mail moved to your new NetTen v1.4, you have to re-set the postmaster password, DNS Admin password, and License Number. See section 4.1.3 for instructions on entering a license number, section 4.1.4 for setting the Postmaster password, and section 4.2.1 for setting the DNS administrator password.

Once you are satisfied that your new NetTen v1.4 is identical to the old one, you can throw out the old NetTen v1.2.

Move DNS Databases

If NetTen is being used as DNS, the DNS databases will also need to be moved. The database files are kept in the folder NetTen/tenon/etc/named. To retain all DNS databases, replace the named folder of the old NetTen with the named folder of the new NetTen.
