  1. Apply the fix pack to the Presentation Server.
  2. If you integrate with Infrastructure Management, apply the fix pack to TrueSight Infrastructure Management.

  • In a new environment, install the App Visibility server components , and then apply the fix pack.

Applying Fix Pack 1 to the App Visibility server

  • Do not delete the App Visibility portal from the Presentation Server before you apply a fix pack . If you delete the portal before you apply the fix pack , you will lose historic synthetic monitoring data.
  • Expect gaps in data until all you apply  the fix pack to components run the same version.
  • In a high-availability environment, apply the fix pack to the standby node first, and then the active node.

The App Visibility proxy component does not have any changes. The version included with Fix Pack 1 is the same as the previous version.
