Use maintenance jobs to upgrade NetScaler SDX instances

May 24, 2018

You can perform a single-bundle upgrade of your NetScaler SDX instances running NetScaler release 11.0 and later. To perform a single-bundle upgrade, you use a built-in task in NetScaler MAS.  With this built-in task, you can upgrade the NetScaler SDX Management Service, XenServer hypervisor, and the supplemental packs and hotfixes for XenServer hypervisor.

To upgrade NetScaler SDX instances using NetScaler MAS

  1. In NetScaler MAS, navigate to Networks > Configuration Jobs > Maintenance Tasks, and then execute the UpgradeNSSDX built-in task to upgrade your NetScaler SDX instances.
  2. On the Upgrade NetScaler SDX Appliance(s) page, from the File Name drop-down menu, select either Local (your local machine) or Appliance (the single bundle image file must be present on NetScaler MAS).
  3. Click Add Instances. In the displayed list, select the NetScaler instances or instance groups that you want to upgrade.
  4. Click OK. You can monitor the progress of the NetScaler SDX upgrade through a task log. To view the task log, click the Execution Summary button.
