Note: A mixed installation with different Fabasoft app.telemetry product versions is not supported!
So you have to update the Fabasoft app.telemetry server, all Fabasoft app.telemetry agents and all Fabasoft app.telemetry web services (WebAPI) installations.
Note: Before starting the update process of the software, you should backup the configuration data of the Fabasoft app.telemetry server:
On updating the Fabasoft app.telemetry server (not a clean new installation), you may have to import a new license file either via the web browser client interface by opening the settings dialog and uploading a new license or by manually replacing the old license file in the file system with a new license file in the server’s configuration directory and restart the server process afterwards. For details see the following chapters:
The installation of the new Fabasoft app.telemetry 2015 requires a new product license for the product name “Fabasoft app.telemetry 2015” and the product version “15”. Since product version 2015 only the major version number is relevant for the license check.
If you are upgrading an old existing app.telemetry installation on a RHEL/CentOS 6 system with activated SELinux you have to fully restart all app.telemetry and Apache daemons after the installation in order to get the SELinux rules applied correctly.
The following installation paths have been changed for Linux installations from older product versions than “2010 Fall Release”:

Details for the Configuration of the Software-Telemetry web service module on Linux on upgrading from older product versions than “2010 Fall Release”:
Because the Software-Telemetry web service is now implemented as web service filter (instead of as a virtual directory) you have to remove any old Software-Telemetry module configuration directives from your custom web server configuration files.
The following configuration is loaded by default with the new Software-Telemetry web service RPM package (apptelemetryweb.rpm):
LoadModule softwaretelemetryweb_module /opt/app.telemetry/softwaretelemetryweb/softwaretelemetryweb.so
This module configures the global filter for "web.telemetry". For more details see the default configuration file: /etc/httpd/conf.d/softwaretelemetryweb.conf
For any embedded Apache (as in Fabasoft Folio) remove the old strudlwebapi.conf configuration file and any embedded configuration directive and replace it with the new Software-Telemetry web module filter ("LoadModule ..." as listed above) to the embedded Apache instance.
The following installation paths and registry keys have been changed for Windows installations from older product versions than “2010 Fall Release”:
Upgrade Process for Microsoft Windows Environment:
After the upgrade of Fabasoft app.telemetry you must alter the Path to the Software-Telemetry web service inside the configuration object of the actual Fabasoft Folio Domain to “../tmp/web.telemetry”.
The reasons therefor are:
