You can upgrade the server operating system on a fresh machine between backup and restore procedures.


  1. Install the new operating system and install the license RPM.
  2. Configure the machine — the following values must match the original installation:
    • IP address

    • Hostname

    • DNS resolution

  3. Install Carbon Black EDR (or VMware Carbon Black EDR Unified View) and run cbinit . If this is a cluster, run add-nodes for each minion.
