Does the server need to be rebooted after installing upgrade from (Email and) Server Security version 12.11 to 12.12?


When upgrading F-Secure Server Security 12.11 to 12.12, a reboot is not required for these upgrades to take effect. When creating the installer you will be given the choice between rebooting or not.

For F-Secure Email and Server Security, if a restart is required cannot be reliably predicted. In general it does not require a reboot of the server. Therefore we recommend to perform the upgrade within a service window.
