Select the upgrade file from the available files list, and click
. Progress messages are displayed in the console as the contents of the upgrade are installed.
After the upgrade file has been installed, the
TAS Manager Console
is restarted in order that the remaining portion of the upgrade is executed with the latest software. All messages displayed in the console up to that point will be appended to the TAS Manager log, but you have an opportunity to review these messages and copy any important messages to the clipboard before the console is restarted. If the TAS recorded any errors during the upgrade, you are informed of them when you are prompted to review the log. Click
to open the log and copy messages by selecting the text and pressing
to close the log and continue.
When the new TAS Manager software is downloaded, the security warning may be displayed. Click
to accept the new software. The new TAS Manager is installed and started, and you are automatically logged in.
If the upgrade requires a new license, the TAS will not start and you will see "Failed to start TAS: Not licensed for TAS version <
> TAS startup failed" in the console.
With a standard multi-server system, the process completes by starting the TAS. When you see "TAS is running" in the console, the upgrade is complete.
Log out of and close the
TAS Manager Console
, and all browser windows. If the upgrade included a new TAS release, the new application will be downloaded to your machine when you start the Landslide Client.
