Software update

By updating your software, you will always have access to the latest developments. The update package is available on the United Planet Download Server. The software update can be started at any time via the main menu Extras / Online update or you can set it to automatically check which updates are available for your system each time you start the Portal Manager. In total, there are three options for the update:

  • Update the Portal Server and Portal Manager on the server system

    The update is performed on the Portal Server and Portal Manager at the same time, if it is started on the system where the Portal Server is installed.

  • Only update the Portal Server on the server system

    To update the Portal Server, start the Portal Manager installed on the server system.

  • Only update the Portal Manager

    This option can be performed directly on a client for the Portal Manager installed there. If the software update is performed from a Portal Manager on the client, the Portal Server currently connected will not be updated. The update package is simply transferred to the Portal Server. A message will be shown in this case that informs the user that the Portal Server update needs to be performed on the server system.

An update of the portal server must always be run before the Portal Manager can be updated. If you perform a software update, you may be informed that you need to restart the services. Afterwards, users will need to log in to the portal again. Please note: When the services are restarted, processes, such as timer actions or data transfers, can be interrupted. Therefore, it may make sense to perform the update when a transaction of this type will not run throughout the duration of the update. After the services have been restarted, users need to log in to the portal again.
