Upgrading on Linux systems

Ensure you upgrade the BigFix server and all the BigFix consoles at the same time (consoles with a version earlier than or later than the server version are not allowed to connect to the server and database).

Other BigFix components (BigFix clients and BigFix relays) can work with the upgraded version of the BigFix server without problems. However, it is recommended that you upgrade the BigFix clients and relays whenever possible to take advantage of the new functions.

For upgrading a DSA environment see Manual upgrade.

Warning: You can roll back to a previous version of BigFix only if you did not enable the enhanced security option. After you enable it in your environment, you cannot roll back to a previous version of BigFix even if you disable it.
