How-to: Installing and updating Exact Globe Next

Introduction

There are various ways of installing and updating Exact Globe Next, such as via the internet, LAN, or CD by using the ProductUpdater_T0 file. Various languages are also available for the Exact Globe Next installation, such as American English (ProductUpdater_T0_AE), German (ProductUpdater_T0_DE), Spanish (ProductUpdater_T0_ES), French (ProductUpdater_T0_FR), and Dutch (ProductUpdater_T0_NL). However, to update Exact Globe Next via the internet, an internet connection is required. The firewall and proxy must be configured correctly to be able to update the software.

There are several ways of installing Exact Globe Next, such as:

  • Installing Exact Globe Next in the server with workstation installations.
  • Installing Exact Globe Next as a stand-alone.
  • Installing Exact Globe Next with extended functionality. For more information, see Performing an update for Exact Globe Next.

When installing an update for Exact Globe Next, all the changes from the previous product updates and service packs are also installed. For example, if you have been using product update 409 and want to update to 410SP1, select 410SP1 in the update screen. You do not have to select 410, and then select 410SP1. Select the highest version that you want to install.

Keep in mind that when a new service pack is available, the older service packs are no longer available for download. Only the latest service pack within a product update can be selected. For more information, see http://blogs.exact.com/support/en/2016/01/change-regarding-the-availability-of-older-service-packs

For example, when product updates 411SP1, 410SP5, and 409SP4 are made available today, you can only select one of these product updates. The product updates 411, 410SP4 to 410SP1, 410, 409SP4 to 409SP1, and 409 can no longer be selected. When product updates 411SP2, 410SP6, and 409SP6 are made available later on, product updates 411SP1, 410SP5, and 409SP5 will no longer be available. You can only select 411SP2, 410SP6, and 409SP6.

Note:

  • Refer to the documents on system requirements and release notes of the relevant product updates and service packs to know the changes that have been included.
  • Internet connection is required when installing or updating Exact Globe Next.
