Upgrade to Paragon Automation Release 23.2

You cannot directly upgrade an earlier release of Paragon Automation to Release 23.2. You must install Release 23.2 afresh.
However, in order to migrate your current Release 23.1 configuration to Release 23.2, you can use the back up and restore functionality as described in this topic.

You cannot custom select applications to be backed up and restored. You can back up and restore only a preconfigured and fixed set of applications and administrations settings for each component, See Backup and Restore for a complete list of applications that can be backed up.

Before You Upgrade:

Upgrade your current release of Paragon Automation to Release 23.1. For information on how to upgrade your current release to Release 23.1, see Upgrade to Paragon Automation Release 23.1.

Upgrade from Release 23.1 to Release 23.2

  1. Log in to the primary node of your Release 23.1 cluster.

  4. Search for the backup source in the Backup Report and navigate to that directory and verify that the files are present.
