important ........... This is an advisory to an operator who has backed up the server data from the previous release in order to manually restore it on a different server device, one that runs an OS version that Release 4.0 supports. (As stated in the server administration guide, the Restore System command option is not supported for restoring the data onto a different server device, but you can restore data according to procedure titled "To migrate operator data in upgrade of WM plus the OS" in that guide.) You must assign the old server IP address to the server on the new device. One problem that this will avoid is a plotted display of data from both servers being rendered in the "WM Monitoring" Collected statistics window when you launch HelpDiagnosticsServer Health Diagnostics.
