Open the ESET Security Management Center Web Console (7.x) (ESMC Web Console) in your web browser and log in.
Click Tasks → ESET Security Management Center → Security Management Center Components Upgrade and click New → Client Task.
In the Name field, type a name for your task. In the Task drop-down menu, verify that Security Management Center Components Upgrade is selected.
Select the ESET PROTECT Server that you want to upgrade to and click OK.
Wait a few minutes until all ESMC components installed on the server machine are upgraded. Apache Tomcat service can get turned off during the update. If the Web Console is unavailable after the update, open the services management (run
services.msc) and Start the Apache Tomcat service.
To verify that your server upgraded to ESET PROTECT, check Programs and Features in the Control Panel. You will see ESET PROTECT Server listed as a program if it has been upgraded.
When the task is finished on the ESET PROTECT Server machine, verify that the ESET PROTECT Server works properly. Wait an hour to see if any problems occur.
