I hope someone can help me out or at least provide me with some answers.
Currently I have two (simple) mining rigs running on a ship (yes, ship; inland shipping). Both rigs have been running for quite some time without major issues. However they are both still running on: Kernel 5.4.0-hiveos #108.
If I am not mistaken, there is a (much) newer version available, which is dated 17th of August. This version is much newer than I am currently running.
Now I want to update HiveOS to the latest version, however I am a bit scared that things might go wrong. I know there is a command called:
I did read the following thread, but it didn’t give me the answers I needed. The thread I am talking about is located here: OS Live Replacement
Also it hasn’t been updated in a very long time. So I am a bit worried that things can go sideways.
FYI: I have no physical access to the mining rigs; only once in one or two months. So I want to be prepared as good as I can and run the correct commands and do the correct preparations for updating the HiveOS version.
As for my questions;
- Is it possible to update the HiveOS firmware on a live system?
- Will my current settings, configurations, etc. all be kept?
- Will I still be able to access the mining rigs after the update?
- What else do I need to take into consideration?
I hope someone can answer my questions and hopefully also some better/more detailed information on updating a live system (if possible).
By the way; both mining rigs are connected through WIFI. So it’s important they also keep the WIFI credentials obviously, otherwise I will not be able to access the mining rigs anymore at all…
Thanks in advance.
