Description



This document contains instructions for upgrading to Symantec Workspace Streaming 6.1 SP7 MP1.
To upgrade to Symantec Workspace Streaming 6.1 SP7 MP1, you must first upgrade to either  6.1 SP4, 6.1 SP4 MP1, 6.1 SP6 MP1 or 6.1 SP7.
 Before you upgrade
Database backup
We recommend performing a full database backup before upgrading. The upgrade process uses scripts to update your database schema to the latest version.
 Configuration backup
The following paths contain custom files or files with custom settings. We recommend that you backup any changes you make to these files for review after upgrade.
After the upgrade, you should review any customizations and compare them with the default settings installed with this release. We do not recommend simply overwriting any existing settings with previous settings. Some of the previous values apply only to legacy package types (SVS, MSI, snapshot, and tracking packages), and several default values have been updated.
Please contact Symantec customer support if you are unsure if a specific change should be merged into the new configuration file.
Before upgrade, any portal customizations as well as any changes in the following files should be backed up:
\agent\conf
agent.lcf
maaccess.key
MAConfig.xml
\common\jdk1.6.0_03\lib\security

Custom reports
Any custom reports should be backed up before upgrading. These reports can be recopied when the upgrade completes.

Performing the Upgrade
Server upgrade
Servers hosting Back End server components should be upgraded before any other servers.
Starting with your Back End server, run the Workspace Streaming server installation on each server that is hosting a streaming component (Back End, Front End, backup, data access, and so on). The installer detects the existing installation and upgrades the necessary components.
After upgrading Front End servers, the Streamlet Engine service (named ATWE STE in the Services applet) on your Back End server should be restarted. This restart is required to display the correct software version of Front End servers and data access components in the Streaming Console.
 Agent upgrade
We recommend using a software distribution application, such as Symantec Client Management Suite, to upgrade the Agent.
 Agent upgrade using the client installation executable
The Streaming Agent can be upgraded to 6.1 SP7 MP1 directly from Workspace Streaming 6.1 SP4, 6.1 SP4 MP1, 6.1 SP6 MP1, or 6.1 SP7. The installation can be performed by a user with admin privileges or silently through a software distribution application.
 Agent upgrade from the Streaming Portal
The Streaming Agent can be upgraded to 6.1 SP7 MP1 directly from Workspace Streaming 6.1 SP4, 6.1 SP4 MP1, 6.1 SP6 MP1 or 6.1 SP7. This installation can be performed by a user with admin privileges as well as non-admin privileges (see exception below).
 Non-admin users on Windows Vista
Non-admin users on Windows Vista are unable to initiate an Agent upgrade from the Agent GUI or from a shortcut. These users should open the Streaming Portal to initiate the upgrade process.
