Create a backup of the database before updating a previously installed version of the UMS. Otherwise, you risk losing all database content.

To perform an update under Windows, proceed as follows:

  1. Download the current version of the IGEL Universal Management Suite from the IGEL Download Server.
  2. Close any other applications and launch the installer.

    You will need administrator rights in order to install the UMS.

  3. Read and confirm the License Agreement.
  4. Read the Information regarding the installation process and click Next.
  5. Under Database backup, select a file for the backup of the existing embedded database. If you do not choose a file name and click on Next, no backup will be created.
  6. Choose the components to be installed under Select Components.

    • Standard UMS

      • with UMS Console

      • with Embedded Database

    • Only UMS Console

    • UMS High Availability Network

      • UMS Server

      • UMS Load Balancer

    • UMS Web App (early feature set)
  7. Read the Memory (RAM) requirements and click Next if your system fulfills them.
  8. Review the settings under Windows firewall exclusions and change them where necessary. Each port that is activated here will be set as an exclusion in the Windows firewall on the UMS Server host machine. For more information about the usage of ports, see UMS Communication Ports.
  9. Read the summary and start the installation process.
    The installer will install a new version of the UMS, create entries in the Windows software directory and in the start menu and will place a shortcut for the UMS Console on the desktop.

    During a UMS upgrade, e.g. from 6.04 to 6.05, the database schema is changed by the installer. With large production databases, this process can last up to 2 hours. Do not abort the installation during this time.

  10. Close the program once the installation is complete by clicking on Finish.
  11. Start the UMS Console.
  12. Connect the UMS Console to the UMS Server with the help of the existing access data.
