    Upgrading Security Director

    You can upgrade from a previous Security Director release to the latest Security Director release.

    Before You Begin

    • If you are upgrading from a previous version of Security Director, clear your browser cache before accessing the Security Director user interface.

    • Back up Junos Space Security Director Release that you want to upgrade. You must take the backup before upgrading Junos Space Network Management Platform. Backing up the Junos Space Network Management Platform database before the upgrade helps you to recover the data if the upgrade fails. See Backing Up the Junos Space Network Management Platform Database.

    • You must upgrade to the supported Junos Space Network Management Platform Release, before you upgrade the Security Director, Log Director, and Security Director Logging and Reporting modules. See Upgrading Junos Space Network Management Platform.

    • The Junos Space Network Management Platform should be active and functioning.

    Note: Required Platform Version column in Table 1 indicates the supported Junos Space Network Management Platform version. Before upgrading Security Director, ensure that the system is running the supported Junos Space Network Management Platform version.
