Before Upgrading

Before you consider upgrading to FireDaemon Pro 4, please ensure you have completed the following pre-flight checks:


Backup

  • Ensure you backup and/or snapshot your machine
  • Ensure you export your FireDaemon Pro service definitions for safe keeping.


Get New License Keys

  • Your FireDaemon Pro 3 or earlier license key will not work with Pro 4
  • FireDaemon Pro 4 and FireDaemon Pro 4 OEM is available on-demand to customers with a current Software Assurance subscription. Please contact us to obtain your license key or link to download Pro OEM.
  • If you don't have a Software Assurance subscription you can upgrade for 50% off the base license price. Please contact us to obtain your discount coupon.
  • You can purchase new Pro 4 licenses with optional Technical Support and Software Assurance subscriptions. Please see the pricing page for more information.


Check Your Upgrade Path

  • If you are running Pro 0, Pro 1 or Trinity 2 - there is no upgrade path to Pro 4. You will need to install Pro 4 and manually re-create your services.
  • If you are running Pro 3 - ensure you have upgraded to the latest version of Pro 3.15 first. This is important as earlier versions of Pro 3 have a bug which means your service configuration cannot be imported into Pro 4. Then install Pro 4 and migrate your services manually from Pro 3 to Pro 4.


Prepare for the FireDaemon Pro 4 Upgrade

  • If you are upgrading Pro 4 from an earlier version of Pro 4, your Pro 4 services will be stopped and restarted as part of the upgrade. If you have FireDaemon Fusion 6 installed, this will be restarted as part of the upgrade too
  • If you have applied your FireDaemon Pro 4 license key, then your license key will be preserved during the upgrade.

  • If you are upgrading from Pro 3 to Pro 4, you will need to manually migrate your services. Please carefully read our migration guide.
