Avalanche Upgrade Process

If you already have Avalanche servers installed, then you will want to perform an upgrade to preserve existing data. During an upgrade, the installer for Avalanche 6.2 migrates the profiles, users, and navigation tree; removes any Avalanche services that are installed locally; and installs the new version. Some data in the Enterprise Server database may be restructured.

For a video tutorial of upgrading Avalanche, see this video on YouTube:

What gets migrated/upgraded:

profiles

users

the navigation tree

Certificate Manager

What doesn't get migrated:

reports (scheduled or completed)

software packages

scheduled deployments

mobile device details

LDAP user accounts

Completed reports (in PDF, XML, or CSV format) are not migrated, but they are not deleted and can still be accessed through the file system. When you install Avalanche 6.2 at a different location than your original server, software packages are not copied to the new environment and must be moved manually.

Supported Versions for Migrating to Avalanche 6.2

Avalanche SE 5.3.0.572

Avalanche MC 5.3.0.543

Avalanche MC External DB 5.3.0.543

Avalanche MC 5.3.1.50

Avalanche MC External DB 5.3.1.50

Avalanche 6.0

Avalanche 6.1

If you have an earlier version than those listed above, you must first upgrade to Avalanche 5.3.1 before upgrading to 6.2.

When upgrading from Avalanche 5.3 to 6.2, we suggest you use a cloned environment. If you upgrade from Avalanche 6.0 or newer, you may choose to upgrade in place.
