How can I upgrade VSA when I have existing integrations

If you are upgrading VSA from v6.5 or older to v7 or newer you will want to follow this process.

Note: As of VSA v8 patch 12 Microsoft .NET v4.5.1 or newer is required to be installed on the VSA server.


Step 1

If you have any older Addins installed please uninstall them from Programs and Features prior to the VSA upgrade.
Note: This step is mandatory or VSA logons will fail after the upgrade. The v4.2 and older Addins are not compatible.

If you are using the older Logon agent or Management Pack. Delete this folder "c:\Kaseya\Webpages\Authanvil". As well remove this file "c:\Kaseya\Webpages\Install\kaddon_authanvil.xml".


Step 2
