1. Download and extract the new version of the Directory Server in a location outside the existing server's installation.

    For these steps, assume the existing server installation is located in /prod/PingDirectory and the new server version is extracted in the /home/stage/PingDirectory location.

  2. Run the update tool provided with the new server package to update the existing Directory Server.

    The update tool might prompt for confirmation of the server configuration changes if it detects customization and display the following code.

    $ /home/staging/PingDirectory/update --serverRoot /prod/PingDirectory
