If you need to upgrade from an earlier release of Security Center 5.9 to 5.9.4.0, you must prepare the following.

What you should know

A minor version is a software version that adds new features, SDK capabilities, support for new devices, bug fixes, and security fixes. Different system components can run at different minor versions, provided they share the same major version. No license update is required to upgrade to a new minor version. A minor version is indicated by a version number with a zero at the fourth position: X.Y.Z.0.

A patch version is a software version that adds support for new devices, bug fixes, and security fixes. Patch versions do not affect system compatibility, as long as all your system components are at the same major version. If you are on the Long-Term Support (LTS) track, patch versions only include critical bug and security fixes. A patch version is indicated by a version number where the fourth position is not a zero.

Procedure

To prepare to upgrade from an earlier release of Security Center 5.9:

Make sure you have the following information:
  • The service logon username and password for all your servers.
  • The name of the database server used to manage the Directory database.

You'll have to re-enter the same values when you install Security Center Server 5.9.4.0.
