Upgrading the Gateway Server

You can perform a direct upgrade of the Gateway Server component by running the installation program from the wizard-based UI or from a command line, also known as silent mode. When upgrading from a version of the product prior to the last two releases, you must perform at least one interim upgrade before you can perform a direct upgrade.
