Upgrading the Network Shell on Windows

This topic provides instructions for upgrading an installation of the Network Shell on Microsoft Windows.

If you installed the Network Shell as part of a Application Server or BMC Server Automation Console installation, upgrading that installation automatically upgrades the Network Shell.

You can also use silent mode to upgrade a Network Shell installation. For information, see Using silent mode to upgrade the Network Shell (Windows).

Before you begin

To perform this installation, you must have local Administrator privileges.

Ensure that Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3 is installed on the server. For more information, see Installing an RSCD agent (Windows).

To upgrade the Network Shell

  1. Navigate to the directory that contains the installation files for the Network Shell and run the installation program. The 32-bit installer can be used for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows environments. (Installation program names follow the convention: NSH<version>-<platform>.)
  2. At the Setup Type window, select Upgrade and then click Next.
  3. To complete the upgrade to your installation, click Finish.
