Upgrade PulseUno

To upgrade PulseUno to the latest version, run the installer on top of your existing installation.

The installer removes the earlier product version and installs the new version using your current PulseUno database, application server, and mail server settings.

Upgrade methods

Run the installer for your platform See Install PulseUno.
Perform a silent installation See Install in silent mode.

After the upgrade, complete the Post-installation steps.

For details about server configuration, see Configuration settings.

Upgrade agents

After you upgraded the PulseUno server, make sure to upgrade the associated agents. You also need to upgrade the chains running on the agents.

Upgrade methods

Upgrade from the user interface To upgrade just the agent code without Java Runtime Environment (JRE), see instructions below.
Run the agent installer for your platform

The agent installer doesn't have an upgrade option.

To do a full agent and JRE upgrade, first uninstall your existing agent and then run the latest agent installer. For details, see Install agents.

When you upgrade agents from the user interface, PulseUno downloads the agent code from the server and installs it. You can upgrade multiple agents at once.

To upgrade agents:

  1. Log in to PulseUno as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Administration > Agents.
  3. On the Agents page, select one or more connected agents.
  4. Click Upgrade.

Tip: If you need to upgrade agents manually, you can download the latest agent files from the user interface. On the Administration > Agents page, click Download Agent Install. The package contains only the agent code and doesn't include JRE.
