How long will you support version 2?
We will provide bug fixes and security updates for version 2 until June 2024.

Is the upgrade to version 3.0 an in-place upgrade?
Yes, the upgrade to version 3.0 doesn’t require a new system. It can be completed in-place by running the upgrade utility from an elevated command line.

How long does the upgrade take?
The upgrade typically takes between 15 to 30 minutes. The Analysis Cockpit will require additional time to synchronize with the new Management Center and may display a “red” status temporarily. This is normal and indicates ongoing synchronization. If this status persists for more than 2 hours, please contact for assistance.

Will the system reboot during the upgrade process?
Yes, the system will reboot multiple times during the upgrade process. No additional action is required after a reboot; the update will automatically continue until it is complete.

Are there other things to consider before performing the upgrade?

Ensure that there is at least 20% free disk space on your device. For instructions on freeing up space on your Management Center, please refer to this link. The upgrade requires connections to both the old and the new update server.

Is there a problem when using several Management Centers or Master ASGARD with different versions?
Yes, an ASGARD 2.x cannot be controlled via the Master ASGARD 3.x, so it is advisable to upgrade Master ASGARD and Management Center at the same time if possible.
