Migrate XiVO from i386 (32 bits) to amd64 (64 bits)

There is no fully automated method to migrate XiVO from i386 to amd64.

The procedure is:

  1. Upgrade your i386 machine to XiVO >= 15.13
  2. Install a XiVO amd64 using the same version as the upgraded XiVO i386
  3. Make a backup of your XiVO i386 by following the backup procedure
  4. Copy the backup tarballs to the XiVO amd64
  5. Restore the backup by following the restore procedure

Before starting the services after restoring the backup on the XiVO amd64, you should ensure that there won’t be a conflict between the two machines, e.g. two DHCP servers on the same broadcast domain, or both XiVO fighting over the same SIP trunk register. You can disable the XiVO i386 by running:

xivo-service stop

But be aware the XiVO i386 will be enabled again after you reboot it.
