Updating the Installation System

Periodically, the Installation System is updated for:
  • Support of new product releases. This is the most common reason the Installation System is updated. 
  • Corrective maintenance to the Installation System

Use one of the following procedures to update the Installation System. The exact procedure varies based on which FTP method is specified in the site-wide defaults (SWD).

To update the Installation System when using standard FTP

  1. On the Installation System Main Menu, select Check for Installation System Update.
