Sure. Be prepared to rebuild and/or reinstall all your ports/packages and follow the other guidelines in src/UPDATING and other documentation. > *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6 That's 6-STABLE.. > *default release=cvs tag=. ..and that's 8-CURRENT. You probably want tag=RELENG_7 (7.0-STABLE) or RELENG_7_0 (7.0-RELEASE + security fixes). > and also may i add ZFS to my server if such kind of update succsessfull. > is it possible or not and advantage and disadvantage. Since ZFS in FreeBSD is still experimental you should do a lot of testing and otherwise keep that in mind. For many loads and with the right tuning (see the wiki) it works fine. Advantages and disadvantages are many but a useful response depends on your goals. Why do you think ZFS would be a good thing for this server?
