Note: The automatic upgrade feature has been added in version 11.5. This will be a manual upgrade and automatic upgrade will begin from version 11.6.

Reduced OpManager Downtime

How does the auto upgrade work?

Every OpManager installation registers with METrack, a secure ledger maintained by ManageEngine and receives an ID. Every day, the ID is cross-verified with the METrack to find any upgrade is available. If new upgrade pack is available, OpManager downloads and places under its repository. At the convenient time scheduled by you, the upgrade process takes place. The status of the upgrade is notified to you via email.

How it works

By default the auto upgrade feature is turned on for all customers. However, if you wish you can turn it off. Once the new PPM is released by ManageEngine, your OpManager setup will check whether auto upgrade is turned on. If yes, it starts installing the ppm. Upon successful upgrade it notifies you via email about the upgrade. If the upgrade turns a failure, then it reverts back to the previous version and notifies the same to you.
