Upgrades and Backups for On-Premises 2018.1

Upgrades and backups for On-Premises include the following:

Every upgrade of CA Agile Central On-Premises is deployed as a new CA Agile Central VMware machine. We recommend bringing up a new version in parallel with the old version. For a complete set of upgrade instructions, refer to the CA Agile Central On-Premises Guide (please contact CA Agile Central Support for a copy).

Activate New Features and Seats

Every time a license has been uploaded, you must restart CA Agile Central Service in order for any changes to take effect. Use the CA Agile Central Service feature on the Control Panel to restart.
