Please read the guidelines below and follow the instructions to upgrade AppLoader.
Besides minor updates, there are also major release upgrades; upgrading will provide access to all the new features and improvements.
To upgrade AppLoader Controller and Injector(s):
1. Before upgrading AppLoader, review the Release Notes as they may contain important information about changes in functionality with the latest release.
2. Backup the current AppLoader data
To back up the data, first stop the three Apploader Services: AppLoader Controller, AppLoader Scheduler, and AppLoader WebServer. Next, zip up the folder “data” under “…\NrgGlobal\AppLoader\” folder. Then restart the AppLoader services.
Important: AppLoader does not support downgrade between major/minor releases. It is strongly recommended to back up your data before any upgrade.
3. Check your license keys.
When upgrading between major versions (e.g., from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 where the first two numbers are different), you do require a new license. To request a new license, please contact NRGGlobal Support team.
If the modules are already installed on your environment, you can also upgrade them by logging in to the AppLoader Controller and clicking the Upgrade Available button on the navigation pane.
If there is no upgrade available for your installed module, the notification icon will not appear. If there is upgrade available, download and install it by clicking Yes button as seen in the image below.
Note: If the AppLoader Controller does not have the latest updates of the current version, you will not see the Upgrade Available button.
5. Put the new license under “…\NrgGlobal\AppLoader\license\” folder.
6.Install all the necessary modules wherever needed.
Tip: To view installation steps, please refer to the AppLoader Installation Guide document.
Important: Please make sure to do the upgrade process for the Injector(s) as well. The AppLoader Controller and the Injector(s) must have the same major X.X version.
*By using the term “Module”, here we mean AppLoader Controller and Injector modules.
