Upgrading to V8.1

About this task

To upgrade the server on the same operating system, see the upgrade instructions:

An upgrade from V7 to V8.1 takes approximately 20 - 50 minutes. Your environment might produce different results than that obtained in the labs.

For information about upgrades in a clustered environment, see Upgrading the server in a clustered environment.

To revert to an earlier version of the server after an upgrade or migration, you must have a full database backup and the installation software for the original server. You must also have key configuration files:
  • Volume history file
  • Device configuration file
  • Server options file
