Updating SI

The instructions below describe both a Server and Client update. Not all releases will require both a Server and Client update, some are just Client updates.


When a new release of SI is available, you will see the following notification when you open an SI Client:

Prior to updating your SI Server we highly recommend that you do the following: 


  • Check in all of your Projects from each SI Client



In fact, while updating the SI you will be prompted to confirm that you have done the steps above.


Not every software release will have both a Client and a Server update but for those that do you will not be able to update any SI Clients until you update your SI Server. Once the SI Server is updated, you can then proceed to update your SI Client machines.


Keep in mind, that once you update your SI Server, all other users will need to apply the SI Update to their Client machines in order to connect to the SI Server, i.e. - updating should be a coordinated event within your company.

SI Server Updates


To check for updates on your SI Server, open the SI Server Manager and click "Check for updates...":
