Title: Bacula-5.2.3 Upgrade
Author: Thomas Beierlein <email@example.com>
The 5.2.x release series of Bacula uses a new database catalog format.
If you're upgrading from a 3.x.x or 5.0.x release, you must upgrade your
bacula catalog database.
Please read the manual chapter for how to upgrade your database. You
can find database upgrade scripts in /usr/libexec/bacula/updatedb/.
It is strongly recommended that you save a copy of your existing
database before upgrading.
The simplest way to upgrade the database:
1. Stop Bacula from running (at least director and storage daemon).
2. Save a copy of your existing database.
3. Emerge new version of Bacula.
4. Run the appropriate upgrade script from /usr/libexec/bacula/updatedb/.
7. Start the new Bacula.
