A general question which many will probably ask: what would be options if one day we want to migrate to Hosted Mender while having a number of devices deployed and connected to self-hosted instance?
There’s basically 2 parts in this question:
switching devices: can it be done with a single mender update? At first glance, it should be possible, yet not sure how artifactCommit stage will behave when the client will start trying commit installation to a clean new server which isn’t aware about this deployment. Which brings to
backend database migration. Probably will be required as well? Absolutely necessary or not really?
Would be nice to receive some info from Mender guys as you probably thought about this scenario.
What is suggested procedure? Will it involve an additional cost for custom technical support (for databse migration for example)?
