Upgrading to SI v17

These instructions will cover upgrading from the following previous versions of SI. The upgrade to SI is not a side by side install. It is an update to your existing SI installation. Thus it is imperative that you backup your SI data in the event that you wish to roll back to your previous version or if there are any unforeseen issues/errors while updating to SI.


You will not be able to update any of your SI Clients until you update your SI Server to SI.


When the SI update is available to you, you will see the following message when you launch SI:
