Can we use a XXYY.img.xz for OTA update to a raspberry Pi 3?


I have created a mender demo server and using my raspberry pi 3 board as the mender client. The rasp board has the latest rasp pi os installed (this is without mender integrated). The connection between the demo server and client (rasp pi) is established by running the command: DEVICE_TYPE=""
sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive dpkg -i mender-client_2.4.1-1_armhf.deb
sudo mender setup
–device-type $DEVICE_TYPE
–server-ip $SERVER_IP_ADDR
sudo systemctl restart mender-client
on the client(rasp pi).
After communication is established btw the server and client, im trying to send a OTA deployment to the rasp pi. For this I am using the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and B+.
My question is, can I send this image directly from the demo server? Will this be deployed on the client(rasp pi)?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @nrniha
and welcome to the mender hub community.

If you can see the device registered on the server, you can issue a deployment on the client.
What have you tried?

p.s. Please use the code formatting

And for UI issues, it’s best if you post a gif animation of the problem you’re experiencing. This makes is much simpler to act on.
