Migrate existing jobs from 10.3.4 to 11.0.1

Hello, I'd try to migrate from the last pro version to v11.xxx in the near future, but I could not find any detailed information about the migration process.

- Will the existing xsibackup-cron file conversion to new /jobs be done auomaticly?
- Will the upgrade presevere the current backup schedule?
- Will I need to run the Key Exchange process again?

A short step-by-step migration tutorial would be very nice!

Re: Migrate existing jobs from 10.3.4 to 11.0.1

I think this is what you are looking for:

(c)XSIBackup Classic: changes in version 11.0.0

- No, conversion is not done automatically. You have to do it manually, although it's quite simple: cut & paste and then arrange the job into lines ending with a "\" backslash. See the example below.
- No, you have to re-schedule your jobs, again very simple with the built in GUI.
- No, you do not need to exchange keys again, the ones you have will still work.
