    • PLEASE NOTE: Whilst this update file will provide the latest version of software, unless you build from scratch, you will miss out on platform updates.

    • Below ALB-X v4.1.x

    Yes. For virtual machines you need to ensure that the IP addresses of the appliances remain unchanged. Simply upload the original licence file onto the new appliance.

    No. During the upgrade, your configuration settings will remain on the ALB-X.
