This procedure assumes that an existing version of the server is stored at PingData-server-old. Make sure a complete, readable backup of the existing system is available before upgrading the server. Also, make sure there is a clear backout plan and schedule.

  1. Download the latest version of the server software and unzip the file. For this example, the new server is located in the PingData-server-new directory.
  2. Use the update tool of the newly unzipped build to update the server. Make sure to specify the server instance that is being upgrading with the --serverRoot option. The server must be stopped for the update to be applied.
