Installation and Upgrade Advice

Installation and Upgrade Advice

If you are upgrading your on-premises implementation from FlexNet Manager Suite release 2017 R1 or later, you may follow normal upgrade procedures (using the Upgrading document from the list below).

If you are upgrading from any earlier release (2014–2016 R2), you should be sure to upgrade all components:
  • Your application server(s) (naturally only for on-premises implementations, using the normal upgrade processes)
  • All forms of FlexNet inventory tools, including the full FlexNet inventory agent, the lightweight FlexNet Inventory Scanner, and FlexNet core inventory components, wherever you may have installed them
  • FlexNet Beacon installed on all your inventory beacons.
This strong recommendation follows from the ongoing security improvements touching all these components that were released from version 2017 R1 and later versions.
If you are using an on-premises installation, there are three documents that provide instructions for installing and upgrading to the current release, FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2.
  • Installing FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 On-Premises. This includes the option of installing Flexera Analytics.
  • Installing FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 for a Managed Service.
  • Upgrading FlexNet Manager Suite from 2014 Rx to 2022 R2 On-Premises. This is designed for upgrades from FlexNet Manager Suite version 2014 or later.

These are contained in the Installation Documentation for FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R2 archive that is available from the Product and License Center and the Customer Community Documentation site. They are also available in the online help for on-premises implementations.
