ePO upgrade 4.6.1 to 4.6.3 - any advice? or gotcha's I should be aware of?

Jump to solution

Hey,

I am about to do my first real upgrade of ePO 4.6.1 to 4.6.3. Are there any points or issues you think I should be aware of? I dont see many complaints in the forum for 4.6.3 so I'm hopeful this version has no major bugs or anything?

Thanks,

Pierce

Pierce,

ePo 4.6 Patch 4 is available, so you may come on Patch 4 istead.

Follow KB 66616 is better option, But mostly upgrade process runs smoothly, and every thing mentioned in this KB is just for safe side.

Hi pierce, I would recommend having your DBA's backup the ePO database, just incase something goes wrong.  If you have Agent Handlers, make sure you stop them.  Once the upgrade is complete and if you do have Agent Handlers, make sure you upgrade them also.  I upgraded 6 ePO servers and 4 Agent Handlers without issue.  Hope this helps.

Thanks, and have a great day.

Hi Mike,

Yes very helpful thanks, plan is to take a full DB backup and a snapshot of the ePo server (its on vmware). So worst case is a database restore and revert snapshot, I had to use this several time when trying to upgrade ePO 4.5.1... i gave up in the end and built a new server!

thanks,

Pierce
