Upgrading to Version 6.5

If upgrading from version 6.0 or later, your existing license will continue to work. During the upgrade, it is possible to include new features, which requires a new license to activate. It is always recommended to create a backup of the existing database before starting an upgrade. Use the following procedure to upgrade.

  • Stop the monitoring service and create a .bak backup of the database
  • Install version 6.5
  • Install the database schema from Database Configuration > Maintenance > Install menu
    • The upgrade can take from a few minutes to several hours to complete depending on the type and quantity of inventory and length of data collection
    • Clicking on the application during upgrade may cause a Not Responding message to appear. Do not force the upgrade process to terminate. The upgrade will continue and a message will appear indicating that the upgrade has completed.
  • Start the monitoring service

Upgrade Progress

Upgrades can take several hours to complete for large databases. The upgrade time depends on the quantity and type of devices in the inventory, the length of time that monitoring has occurred, and the type of changes that exist in the new software. DO NOT STOP the upgrade once it has started even if the Viewer displays a Not Responding message. A dialog will appear once the upgrade completes.

The Viewer may take a few minutes to open the first time it is started after an upgrade while final updates complete. During this time, do not force the application closed.
