I think if you follow the steps for disaster recovery
and then run the steps to upgrade a working system from 1.5x to 1.7x
immediately after restoring the database dump (see Upgrading at
that should work.
In other words, restore the 1.5x database on a system with the 1.7x
code, and then upgrade the database and related files to the 1.7x schema
before actually running Freeside.
I did this on a machine in the lab several months ago, and the few spot
checks I did on the resulting system looked like the procedure worked.
