Important note: As always, make a copy of the entire Netflow Analyzer installation folder before applying the upgrade and keep the copy in a separate location. If anything goes wrong during the upgrade, you'll have this copy as a backup, which will keep all your settings intact. If you're using a MS SQL server as a back-end database, back up the Netflow Analyzer database before upgrading. Once the upgrade is successfully completed, remember to delete the backup.

 

We offer our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

 

Best regards,

ManageEngine Netflow Analyzer
