Hi guys,

I was doing the upgrade from 3.2 to 3.3 using...
http://www.ovirt.org/OVirt_3.3.5_release_notes and

It ran through successfully up until the downloading part...

at this point the companies' local IT guy rebooted the server/engine
(I couldn't believe it too!).

Upon reboot when I run engine-setup it seems to pick up that the
DB/config doesn't exist...

...would my next step be restoring from backups of the
config/DBI/Certificates and starting the upgrade again from ....EG:
 or do I have an other options?

Thank you.
