Upgrading to Proficy Portal 2.6

It is recommended that you DO NOT UNINSTALL older versions of the product before installing Proficy Portal 2.6. Proficy Portal setup will automatically detect the presence of an older version and will upgrade the files. However, you should back up (make a copy of) your working directories before running the upgrade.

The following upgrade paths are supported:

GE Fanuc/Proficy Portal/webapps/infoAgentSrv/Upgrade2/UpgradeRerun.cmd

GE Fanuc/Proficy Portal/webapps/infoAgentSrv/Upgrade2/UpgradeApp.cmd

NOTE: If you are upgrading from infoAgent 1.1 or 2.0, it is recommended that you first upgrade to either Proficy Portal 2.1 or 2.5, and next upgrade to version 2.6.
