Upgrade physical ATD-3000 appliance from v3 to v4.4
We have a physical ATD-3000 appliance currently running 126.96.36.199.58939, and would like to update it to 4.4.0
From what I have read we would have to go 3.8 > 4.2 (migration package) > 4.4, are there any pitfalls to be aware of? How do we take a full backup of the appliance in case we need to go back to 3.8, I can take a configuration backup from the admin interface but that looks to be about it, if it was a VM I could just take a snapshot! (sadly we don't have the resources required to run it as a VM)

The following is described in Google Translate.
We also upgraded ATD from 3.X to 4.4. However, not in migration, we decided that new installations had less risks in our case, and installed ATD 4.4 on ATD 3000.
In doing so, the most important thing to remember is that Activate of the VM could only be done by web access via the management port.
Originally, it is only necessary to access the browser via the management port, but if it is not the case, it is impossible to activate the VM. This is a specification changed with ATD 4.4, but it was not described anywhere.
We are encouraging McAfee to return to the original specification via this site.
Also, backup disks and active desks can not be used from ATD 4 series. After raising to ATD 4.4, restore using backup disk can not be used.
