Upgrading orcharhino Server
This guide describes how you can upgrade orcharhino to a newer version. See the orcharhino Release Notes for a high level overview of available versions and their features.
Ensure that you carefully read all of the instructions, warnings, and recommendations presented in this guide and the appropriate version specific orcharhino Upgrade Notes in the ATIX Service Portal. ATIX AG does not offer support for recovery from a failed upgrade if you did not follow our upgrade guide.
ATIX AG does not support using third party repositories on your orcharhino Server or orcharhino Proxies. Resolving package conflicts or other issues due to third party or custom repositories is not part of your orcharhino support subscription. Please contact us if you have any questions.
