All that should have been tested on a test machine. – John Gardeniers Apr 18 '10 at 11:09
+1 for the test machine - you really don't want experimenting with new kernels on production servers – Prof. Moriarty Apr 18 '10 at 12:10
I like the idea of doing all this after the fact on the production system - brings back some much needed suspense into daily routine... :) – Sven Apr 18 '10 at 13:18
After you upgrade you should reboot and start using it – Rob Olmos Nov 4 '10 at 4:51

I have an idea that you could try to use qemu snapshot option and some config imitating your original server config.
