Upgrade VigorACS 2 to VigorACS 3 on Linux

VigorACS 2 users are offered to upgrade to VigorACS 3. The database of VigorACS 3 is compatible with that of VigorACS 2, so we can keep all your data after updating. If we still have an valid license of VigorACS 2, we can convert the remaining license to VigorACS 3 manually on MyVigor.

Note:

  1. Once VigorACS 3 is installed, we cannot downgrade to VigorACS 2.
  2. Please check the compatible CPE list and hardware requirement first from here. VigorACS 3 can only run on 64-bit platforms.
