    Hi,

    There is no information concerning an upgrade from MyIT 3.0 / SmartIT 1.3 to MyIT 3.0.01 / SmartIT 1.3.01.

    For previous Service Pack we can find some information concerning the steps for the installation of the Service Pack. For example: the UX patch installation in at least one older Service Pack was not required.

    For this one we have no information. There is only a link to the standard installation process, but nothing for the upgrade.

    What are the main steps to do this kind of upgrade?

    What has to be considered (pre install / post install) if Atrium SSO is already installed and configured?

    Thanks in advance for completing this black hole in the documentation.

    Regards,

    Vincent.

      Hello Vincent,

      For this service pack, a standard installation or upgrade should be followed. In fact, you can use this installer to upgrade directly to 3.0.01 from 2.6. For future releases, we are looking at better differentiating upgrade documentation from installation documentation.

      Regards,

      Michele
