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 Dynatrace Server can stop operating and upgrade itself (for example, during a previously scheduled maintenance window). 

Scheduling automatic updates

To define a start time for automatic updates:

  1. From the Settings menu, select Preferences.
  2. In the Automatic updates section, specify a weekly maintenance window start time. Dynatrace Server updates will start at the time you specify.
  3. Note:  This setting does not 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.

Your monitoring and cluster management pages won’t be accessible during the upgrade process.
