All five (5) of the Emby servers that I look after for friends and family all successfully upgraded to Stable release v4.0.0.2.

Library scans are taking a bit longer than usual, but I guess that's to be expected first time around.

:)

Same.  I've got a bunch I manage as well for people and all has gone well on the upgrades.

No. I didn't delete the library.db files in the end, as I wanted to see how long the first one took, then I just let the others upgrade themselves.

I have 700 or so movies and several thousand episodes. How long do you think that will take on an i5 4690k if I shut down MCEBuddy to keep it from hogging resources?

The initial library scan may take a good while if you have the "Extract chapter images during the library scan" option enabled.

You could stop the scan, disable that option on each library and rerun.

Once completed, re-enable the option.

So, what is the best practice to upgrade from 3.5.3 stable to 4.x stable? The process described in post #1?

 

I don't mind start over with the library but I would like to save the watch status and restore it after rebuilding the database.

Is this possible?

Just let your server auto-update.

Auto update if supported on your platform, otherwise install the latest version manually on top of your existing version.

What about upgrading from 4.0.0.1 beta to 4.0.0.2 stable? Do I get the installer from the Emby site and perform a clean install? Or over the top? There are no update messages on my server.

 

Just run the installer, this will change your beta to stable branch.
