The Security Center 5.9 Installer upgrades the Directory database as part of the main server upgrade. You only need to upgrade the Directory database manually if you restored an older version of the database.

What you should know

After restoring an older version of the Directory database, Server Admin notifies you that a database update is required.
Best Practice: Before you upgrade, back up your database in a secure location that is separate from your main server.


  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Database with the flashing red LED.
    • Click Database update () in the Directory section.
    The Directory database update starts, and the database server status shows Upgrading.
  2. While the database is being upgraded, click Show progress () to view the progress of the upgrade.
    When the upgrade is completed, the Status shows OK.
  3. Click Database properties () to confirm the version of the database and the number of entities in the database.
  4. Log off from Server Admin, and then log on to Config Tool.
  5. Open the System task, and select Roles.
  6. Select the Archiver role, and click Resources.
  7. In the Actions section, click Database update () .

    After the upgrade is complete, the Database status indicates Connected.
  8. Repeat the steps for every role that requires a database update. The roles on your system vary depending on your license options.

After you finish

Shrink the Archiver database, and if necessary, other databases that you have upgraded.
