4.2.2. Server operations

In this section, you can perform the following server maintenance actions:



Server operations

  • Reboot: reboot the UserGate LogAn server.

  • Shutdown: shutdown the UserGate LogAn server.

Updates channel

Here you can select the update channel for UserGate LogAn software:

  • Stable: check for stable software updates and download them (if any).

  • Beta: check for experimental updates and download them (if any).

The UserGate company is continuously working to improve its software and provides UserGate LogAn product updates as part of the Security Update license module subscription (for more details on licensing, see the chapter UserGate LogAn Licensing). If any updates are available, a notification to that effect will display in the Product management section. As a product update can take quite a while, it is recommended to allow for the potential UserGate LogAn downtime when planning update installation.

To install updates, follow these steps:



Step 1. Create a backup file.

Create a backup copy of the UserGate LogAn state as described in section Offline Server Operations. This step is always recommended before applying updates because it will allow you to restore the previous state of the device, should any problems arise during the update process.

Step 2. Install the updates.

In the Device management section, if the New updates available notification is present, click Install now. The system will install the downloaded updates, and when the installation completes, UserGate LogAn will reboot.
