If you are using multiple SquaredUp servers using high availability (HA) with a load balancer see Enabling High Availability.
Carrying out an In-place upgrade
The steps below describe how to carry out an In-place by simply downloading and running the latest installer on the server where SquaredUp DS is installed.
Before upgrading we recommend you backup SquaredUp DS for SCOM (see How to backup and restore SquaredUp DS for SCOM).
Download the latest version of SquaredUp DS.
Run the installer that you have downloaded.
Leave the default install type as In-Place. Check the correct SquaredUp DS instance is going to be upgraded. You can click edit to see more details.Editing the deployment type - side-by-side, in-place or new installation
Click edit on the Deployment Type screen if you wish to change the install:
- Side-by-side - This migrates your dashboards to a new instance of the new version, but leaves your old instance as it is.
- In-place - This upgrades your old instance to the version you are installing. It is not possible to revert or rollback to your old version.
- New installation - This will install a separate instance of the new version which does not use any dashboards from your old instance. See How to install SquaredUp DS for SCOM
