The step-by-step process to upgrade N2WS

Before beginning the upgrade process, it’s essential to verify which version of the N2WS Console you currently have installed. This can be easily done by accessing the “about” box in the upper right-hand corner of the console. By selecting the question mark icon and then choosing the about box, you can quickly identify the version you are running. If you are already on version 4.2.X, you are ready to proceed with the upgrade using a patch.

Obtaining the Patch:

Navigate to the support section by clicking on the question mark icon and selecting support. From there, access the knowledge base and then proceed to the release documentation. Use the search bar to enter “4.2.X” and locate the release notes for the latest 4.2.X CPM release. Within the release notes, you will find the patch file needed for the upgrade. Simply download the file and store it in a secure location for later use.

Uploading and Installing the Patch:

Returning to the N2WS Console, access the server settings by clicking on the cog symbol in the upper right-hand corner. From there, navigate to the patches section and click the “choose file” option. Select the previously downloaded patch file and proceed by clicking on “upload and install.”

The process of uploading and installing the patch is swift, but it is important to allow it to complete successfully. Depending on your Internet connection speed, this step may take a few minutes. Once the upgrade has been performed, it is crucial to wait for the internal scripts to finish by leaving the console undisturbed for approximately five minutes.

Verifying the Upgrade:

After allowing sufficient time for the internal scripts to complete, refresh the console and return to the about box by selecting the question mark icon in the upper right-hand corner. By doing so, you can confirm that the upgrade to the most recent version, 4.2.2, has been successful. At this point, you have successfully upgraded your N2WS Console to the latest version, ensuring that you are benefitting from the newest features and enhancements.

Exploring the Latest Features:

Upon completing the upgrade, you have the option to review all the new features and improvements in the release notes, allowing you to take full advantage of the capabilities offered in the updated N2WS version.

Keeping your N2WS instance up to date is essential for maintaining optimal performance and security. By following the step-by-step guide provided, you can seamlessly upgrade your existing N2WS console to the latest version. By doing so, you are ensuring that you are equipped with the most recent features and improvements, thereby maximizing the value and functionality of N2WS in managing your cloud resources.
