Summary: 

With the introduction of Multi-Port Monitor 10.3, the upgrade process changed in a way that allows for fresh installations of CentOS and the Multi-Port Monitor software.

This process can be utilized to resolve several different issues.

1) Downgrading the Multi-Port Monitor for compatibility reasons.

2) Repairing the CentOS operating system that may have become corrupt.

3) Minimizing upgrade time by allowing customers to "jump" to 10.3

Environment:  

CentOS

Instructions: 

1) Burn 10.3 CentOS ISO image (1.2 GB) to DVD and insert into MTP disk drive

2) 'sudo reboot'

3) Install will run through to completion

4) Using 'sudo setup' (locally), apply updated network connection information. Ensure settings have been applied using 'service network restart'.

5) Locally or via SSH, install the 10.3 MTP software (detailed in the Multi-Port Monitor 10.3 Installation Guide)
