SERVERware 3 & 4 GUI Update


The updates section of System Settings is used to update the various SERVERware components. The list on the right side shows the Name, Current Version, and Latest Version of the component that can be updated.

The SERVERware controller will check for available package updates daily.

Once the update is available the notification pop-up message will appear on the top of the GUI screen every time the admin user log-in.

The pop-up dialogue window disappears after 10 seconds and provides a link to open the package update view if the administrator wants to proceed with updates.

Email notifications for newly available updates will be sent to the system administrators as well.

To update a SERVERware component, click the Update button for that component. The update process starts after the confirmation window.

If there is more than one component update, SERVERware connector should be the first component to be updated.

Updating Host SW-Connector

The sw-connector service agent running on hosts is a crucial component for the proper functioning of the SERVERware environment, so it has to be updated if there are new features or bug fixes. A host should be moved to maintenance mode before updating the sw-connector.

Follow this procedure to update the sw-connector:

  1. In the Host view, select the host which sw-connector has to be updated.
  2. Move the host into maintenance mode.
  3. Click the Update SW-Connector button.
  4. Open the System Logs view to track the progress of updating.
  5. When the update is complete, click the Enable button to enable the host.


Steps 1 to 5 should be repeated for every storage/processing/backup Host in SERVERware 3 GUI.
