Update RancherOS to version 1.4.1
RancherOS has been updated at this location.
I'm not technically savvy enough, but is there a long term solution to updating the backend RancherOS build for users? I suspect once 11.2 is rolled out, with docker support? People are going to want this.
Is there a script which could clone a new RancherOS with the same VM settings (except filename obviously) then migrate all data across into the new VM?
I'm still learning docker, I know it supports an export feature which is apparently very powerful. Perhaps docker itself could migrate from one VM to another easily for the end users?
(Yes, this would temporarily require twice the disk space, memory, CPU etc)
Ultimately people have complained of the inability to update the dockerVM on the forums. Is there anything that can be done at all by you clever folk or is this just something end users will need to work around manually?
Either way, 1.4.1 is out, so the download script for a new DockerVM instance in the UI, should pull that.
Thanks again for all the help / hard work.

I have just been made aware of the YAML file which people configure in order to map the dockers back to their real pool of data via CIFS.
This may need to be considered if a plan is put in place for upgrading or replace upgrading the VM.
Thanks to point it out!
Nowadays I do most of things manually to create a RancherOS image for bhyve. I will research how I can automate this process.

Any thoughts on my comments about long term solutions to upgrades?
(I am right or wrong about the inability to upgrade easily?)
What does Kris think?
You are right about the inability to upgrade it easily and it is something that bothers me a lot as I don't yet have a long term solution.
The main issue right now is that I do need to know the Linux kernel version as well as initrd version to be able to generate the grub config file and be able to boot the VM.
I'm investigating a different approach to let users always have the latest RancherOS version or even multiples different RancherOS versions in their setup.
However right now I still don't know what would be the right approach to solve this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience.
