Updating a UMS Installation

Here you'll find how to update a UMS installation under Windows or Linux.

Create a backup of the database before updating a previously installed version of the UMS. Otherwise, you risk losing all database content.

If you use an older version of the IGEL Remote Manager with SAP DB, we recommend that you switch to the Embedded Database before updating the UMS. For a more detailed description of this switch, please contact IGEL Support.

Installing a version of the UMS which is older than the one currently used is only possible if you have a backup of the database with the corresponding older schema. You can only switch from an older database schema to a newer one, not the other way around. You should therefore create a backup of your existing system before you start the update.

We recommend that you install the new version of the UMS on a test system before installing it on the productive system. Once you have checked the functions of the new version on the test system, you can install the new version on the productive system. This also applies to hotfixes, patches etc. for the server system and database.

If the version of the UMS console is older than the version of the UMS server, you will not be able to establish a connection to the server (Unable to load tree error message). In this case, you will need to update the installation of the UMS console.

From UMS 5.01.100, you can only use the directory ums_filetransfer or sub-directories created in it for WebDAV downloads. The installer offers you the option of moving existing directories to this new default folder.
