Installing Signalware Service Pack 6V or 6.3

 

Installing Service Pack 6V or 6.3 builds on the example of a default Signalware 9 installation earlier in this chapter.

This patch installation example uses the same user (siguser) and user group (users) information and assumes that you have performed the base installation and configuration procedures documented earlier in this chapter.

Note

Ensure that before you upgrade to SP6.V or SP6.3, you have SP6.0 installed in the system.
