As the TrueSight system administrator, you can upgrade App Visibility Manager components from version 10.1 or later to the current version of the product.
You can upgrade using an interactive mode, or using a silent (or unattended) mode. For most components, the interactive mode employs a wizard. The App Visibility agent for Java employs an interactive command line process.
In a silent upgrade, you define options in a file that provides the settings to the program, and then you run the upgrade program from a command line.
Because TrueSight Operations Management components must run the same version, upgrade the components in the following order:
- Upgrade the Presentation Server.
If you integrate with infrastructure management, upgrade to the current version of TrueSight Infrastructure Management.
Do not delete the App Visibility portal from the Presentation Server before upgrading. Deleting the portal before upgrading will cause a loss of historic synthetic monitoring data.
- Upgrade agents:
As soon as you start upgrading components, data collection stops or is incomplete until all components run the same version.
