Upgrade a relay

There are two ways to upgrade all your relays before you start to upgrade agents (see Best practices for upgrades for details).

Upgrade a relay from Workload Security

  1. Log in to the Workload Security console.
  2. Identify your relays by doing one of the following:

    • Go to Computers. In the main pane, look for computers with the relay icon (Relay icon).
    • Go to Administration. On the left, click Updates > Relay Management. In the main pane, expand a Relay Group. Your relays are displayed with the relay icon (relay icon).
    • Double-click the relay that you want to upgrade.
    • Click the Actions tab.
    • Click Upgrade Agent.

Follow the steps in the wizard that appears. Steps are similar to upgrading an agent, since a relay is just an agent with relay functionality enabled. For details, see Upgrade the agent.

Upgrade a relay by running the installer manually

Sometimes you may not be able to upgrade the relay software from the Workload Security console. In these cases, you can upgrade a relay manually. For detailed instructions, see Upgrade the agent manually. The referred-to instructions are for agents, but work equally for relays.
