The revert-update tool accesses a log of file actions taken by the update tool to put the filesystem back to its prior state. If multiple updates have been run, the revert-update tool can be used multiple times to revert to each prior update sequentially. For example, the revert-update command can be run to revert to the server's previous state, then run again to return to its original state. The server is stopped during the revert-update process.


Reverting an update is not supported for upgrades to version 7.0 due to the topology backend changes.

  1. Navigate to the server root directory.
  2. To revert back to the most recent version of the server, use the revert-update tool.
