Getting Ready to Upgrade:
The update to version 7.3.2 requires that the existing deployment be installed with QRadar 7.3.x (7.3.0 or 7.3.1 any patch version). Administrators on a QRadar 7.3.x version can use the SFS file from IBM Fix Central to update their deployment to QRadar 7.3.2. It is important that administrators ensure that their appliances are updated to the latest version before you begin an upgrade. Administrators who are on the latest version of the QRadar Assistant App can use the app to identify applications that have newer versions available.
QRadar 7.3.x admins, download the Patch 2 SFS to upgrade
To install an App Host, download the QRadar 7.3.2 Patch 2 ISO
I’m using QRadar on Cloud, will I get the 7.3.2 update?
Yes. Administrators who are using QRadar on Cloud should receive an update email from IBM. Our QRadar on Cloud DevOps team notifies the QRadar on Cloud administrative contact via email to inform them of their scheduled maintenance window. If you are a QRadar on Cloud administrator, you have already received the update to QRadar 7.3.2. As new software versions are released, you will receive further updates to inform you of updates to your QRadar on Cloud deployment.
What if I’m on QRadar 7.2.8?
Administrators who are on QRadar 7.2.8 must first upgrade to QRadar 7.3.1 using the ISO file, then update to the latest QRadar version using the SFS file.
1. QRadar 7.2.8 admins, upgrade to 7.3.1 now
2. Install the 7.3.2 Patch 2 SFS
Do I install QRadar 7.3.2 GA or install the latest patch?
QRadar Support recommends that users install the latest software update to stay updated on resolved issues (APARs) and security fixes for QRadar products. Administrators should schedule updates during a maintenance window before they start installing QRadar software and it is always a good idea to review QRadar Support’s Upgrade Check list for important notices and a list of pre-installation and post-installation review items.
