Upgrading the SMC configuration overview

All SMC components must be upgraded at the same time. Before upgrading, make sure that SMC licenses are up to date.

Follow these general steps to upgrade the SMC:
  1. Prepare the installation files.
  2. (If automatic license updates have been disabled) Update the licenses.
  3. Upgrade all components that work as parts of the same SMC.
  4. (Multiple Management Servers only) Synchronize the management database between the Management Servers.
  5. If you distribute Web Start Management Clients from some external server (instead of the Management Server), update the Web Start distribution.
