How to install the latest stable patch release for AhsayCBS:

Important:

  • Please read the Release Notes before applying the patch.
  • For branded / customized AhsayCBS installation, it is recommended to first create an export JSON of your branding properties before upgrading.
  • Although the branding, SSL cert, and other configuration settings of your existing AhsayCBS server will be carried over after the upgrade. In branded environments, the AhsayOBM / AhsayACB client installers will need to be rebuilt before they are updated to the latest release version. Therefore, it is recommended that the auto upgrade (AUA) feature is disabled for all backup users before starting the AhsayCBS upgrade process. Please refer to our AhsayCBS Administrator's Guide for more details on branding.
  • When upgrading an older release, for example 6.27.0.0, before proceeding with the upgrade, please refer to the upgrade instruction provided in Chapter 4 of our Ahsay Backup Software Upgrade / Migration Guide instead of the instructions below.
