NOTE: Upgrading from 7.7.x to 7.8 requires these steps:

  • Step 1: In the V-Series appliance manager, download and install appliance Hotfix 90 for 7.7.0 or 7.7.3 (your current version). Installing this hotfix prepares your appliance to receive a large patch file.
  • Step 2: After Hotfix 90 has been installed: in the appliance manager, download and install the appliance patch for 7.8.1.
  • Step 3: From the Downloads page at MyWebsense.com, select Email Security Gateway. Locate and download the TRITON Setup program for Windows. Use this program to upgrade the TRITON management server to 7.8.1.
  • Step 4: In the V-Series appliance manager, download and install the appliance patch for 7.8.2.
  • Step 5: From the Downloads page at MyWebsense.com, select Email Security Gateway. Locate and download the TRITON Setup program v7.8.2 for Windows. Use this program to upgrade the TRITON management server to 7.8.2.

Upgrade Overview: Versions prior to v7

An upgrade from an older product version typically requires two steps (after you back up your files): (1) move to an interim version and (2) then move to the latest version. In this case, you may need an installer for an older version to accomplish the interim upgrade. Backups at each step are essential.
