Running PMG v. 5.1-2, what is the best way to upgrade the PMG to v. 5.2 ?
Is that to take a backup of the configuration (Configuration - Backup/Restore) ?

Running the PMG on Hyper-V (Windows 2016) - do you then create a new Hyper-V instance and then restore the configuration backup ?
Will it then have the old IP address and all of the WhiteList's and BlackList that the users have created in the past ??

Please make sure you have the correct repositories configured (see chapter 3.4 in the pmg-admin-guide:
