Avantra server upgrade path


Master server version 6.x up to and including 7.1.6

This upgrade will be a three-step process as detailed below. Please also take note of the Avanta agent support requirements in the release notes as Avantra 20.5+ supports only a minimum agent version of 6.0.32.

  1. Ensure all agents are at a minimum level of 6.0.32
  2. Upgrade the master to at least version 7.1.7 of "Syslink Xandria" (although we recommend bringing it up to the latest patch level for 7.1 which, at the time of writing, is 7.1.9).
  3. Upgrade from 7.1.9 to the latest Avantra version which, at the time of writing, is 20.5.4
    • Please note that following step 2 you will need a new license to be issued by Avantra support. Please email support@avantra.com once you require this new license.
