    Upgrade Servers from 9.04 to 10.04 LTS

    I've two servers working quite happily, but I'm aware that support for Jaunty/Jackalope is ending. One servers is a Samba PDC the other is a mail server.I obviously don't want to break either of them. What is the recommended procedure for upgrading from 9.04 to 10.04 LTS can I do it directly and if it fails can I just use my backup over the top of the upgrade to effectively downgrade?

    before upgrading, check a few points:

    - deactivate/remove all non genuine jaunty repo (ppa & third parties)
    - uninstall not required apps
    - update, upgrade to get the latest packages
    - clean the system as much possible: bleachbit, gtkorphan, gconf-cleaner will help
    - reboot

    then you can dist-upgrade:
