Automated Upgrade

EBA DMS allows automated updates. In addition to updating via the local network, updating of the EBA DMS client via the web is also supported. The configured update can also be written to selected dependent databases

Before each update, you must first perform the update on the server where you have the EBA DMS installed. If necessary, you must update the database using the “Update database” button.

To set automatic update in Administration > Update management section Setting up updates and click “Add”.

  1. (Required)Select the location where the installation file of the version you want to upgrade to is located.
  2. The platform is determined by the system according to the installer
  3. Enter parameters – if needed – special parameters are not needed on existing systems:
    • /d = path to the installation, default path is C:\Program Files\EBA\ (enter only if you defined a different path during installation)
    • /ini = path to the ini file, default path is C:\Program Files\EBA\ (check what path to the ini file you have)
  4. IP mask – enter only if you want to update a specific client at an IP address
  5. Domain – enter if you are using a domain (Windows AD)
  6. (Required)Username and password of the Windows administrator account – entered user must have administrator rights on all computers in network in order to run the installer.

Activating the update

Once all the parameters have been entered correctly, the update needs to be activated – select the update you have just set up from the list and click on the Activate button.

Now we check with one of the users if the update starts.

When the user starts the EBA DMS client, the notification below should appear:

After the update, depending on the version of the operating system, it will be necessary to confirm the security certificates: start the program from an unknown location and confirm the UAC warning. In Windows 10, it looks something like this:

Figure 3: Confirming the UAC warning

In some cases, it is necessary to deactivate the antivirus as it blocks the installation package from running.

After confirmation, the installation process is started, the installation progress is marked in green in the horizontal bar. When the process reaches 100%, the update is complete and the user can log in to the system and continue working.

Deactivating the update

In case you want to deactivate the update, you need to run a command on the base.

Example of a command to deactivate an update:

update eba_scheduled_updates
SET active=0
WHERE version=''
