Upgrade the security connector

When a new version of the security connector is available, you can select to upgrade it. Users who are configured to receive upgrade notifications are notified by email when an upgrade is available.

The upgrade process reboots the virtual machine and automatically updates the Security Connector software. The upgrade may take up to 10 minutes to complete.

Make sure that you upgrade one Security Connector at a time. This ensures that a DNS forwarder is always available while another DNS forwarder is upgraded.

Note: If you are upgrading from Security Connector version 2.0.0 to version 2.2.0, the upgrade process may time out. If this occurs, the version number shows as SC-2.1.0. To upgrade to version 2.2.0, hover over the security connector and click the upgrade icon again.

You must be an ETP super administrator to perform this task.
