When upgrading across multiple versions of Netwrix Auditor, you may be required to do so incrementally. Below is a list of approved upgrade paths from Version 8.0 to 9.9.
Please Note: The paths listed below represent the most efficient paths to upgrade to the latest version.
If you will be performing multiple increments, you must wait 24 hours between upgrades to give the SQL databases and Netwrix Auditor services ample time to update.
If you have the capability to capture a snapshot of the server, we recommend doing so. Before we begin, launch a PowerShell session as Administrator and execute the following command:
Stop-Service -Displayname Netwrix*
This will stop all Netwrix Services and prevent complications during the upgrade.
Note: Please reference this article for Netwrix Auditor upgrading best practices.
