How do I update Dynatrace Server?

This topic applies to Dynatrace Managed installations only.

Dynatrace Server updates take place automatically. All you need to do is specify a convenient time when your users won't be using Dynatrace Managed and the system can upgrade itself (for example, during a previously scheduled maintenance window).

Scheduling automatic updates

To define a start time for automatic updates:

From the navigation menu, select Settings > Automatic update.

Set the Install Dynatrace cluster updates automatically switch to the On position.

Note: This switch is disabled if the license for the cluster has the Enforce automatic cluster updates feature enabled. In such cases, even the cluster administrator can't change this setting.

Specify a weekly maintenance window start time. Dynatrace Server updates will start at the time you specify.

Note: This setting doesn't affect the download of updates.

Before you begin

To run a successful update, you need at least 3 GB of available space on the partition where Dynatrace Managed is installed.

Note: Your monitoring and cluster management pages won't be accessible during the upgrade process.
