How can I upgrade the F-Secure Scanning and Reputation Server (SRS) to the latest version?


The F-Secure Scanning and Reputation Server (SRS) updates the virus definitions automatically but does not update the server itself. Since the SRS is self contained, an upgrade is not possible. A new installation is required. If you wish to install the the latest version of the F-Secure Scanning and Reputation Server, follow these steps:

  1. Install and configure the new Scanning and Reputation Server (SRS) instances (refer to the Deployment guide Virtual Security ) with different IP addresses than the existing instances. This is to ensure both the current and new instances can work simultaneously during the transitional period
  2. Once installed and configured, log into F-Secure Policy Manager Console, go to the settings tab and choose advanced view. Navigate to F-Secure > F-Secure Offload Scanning Agent > Settings > Connection > Primary servers and replace the IP addresses to the new addresses that you have set for the new instances, and distribute policies (CTRL + D)
  3. Allow all hosts to update to the new configuration. To verify, go to the Status tab in the Policy Manager Console and check whether the hosts are connected and having the latest policy in use (Centralized management)
  4. Once all hosts are updated and the new servers appear to work as should, you may shut down the old SRS instances and remove them from the Policy Manager Console
