This article describes how to upgrade your single-server environment from version 4.3.0, 4.3.2, 4.3.4 to version 18.104.22.168 of the Code42 platform.
For multi-server environments, see Upgrading Your Multi-Server Environment From Version 4.3.x To 22.214.171.124.
If your authority server is a Code42 managed appliance, our Customer Champions work with you to upgrade your Code42 environment. Do not attempt to upgrade your environment on your own.
Before you begin
- Review the general instructions at Upgrade Version 4.3.x To 126.96.36.199.
- From the administration console Licensing screen, verify that your support is up-to-date.
Only environments under current support and maintenance are able to upgrade.
- Make sure that your host server meets the enterprise server requirements.
- (OS X) If your host server is running Java 6, upgrade to Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) 7.
- Verify that your devices can download the device upgrade files from your enterprise server.
Depending on whether your enterprise server is configured to require SSL, devices connect on TCP 4285 (for HTTPS) or TCP 4280 (HTTP).
We strongly recommend that you perform the upgrade in a test Code42 environment before upgrading your production Code42 environment.
