Installation Instructions

Expected Duration: < 10 mins (after file has been downloaded and transferred to the GridGuard server)

  • Please make a snapshot of your VM prior to beginning this process.
  • The GridGuard appliance will need to be restarted after applying this patch.
  • If you are upgrading from a version equal to or below 4.6.1, the ACC gridadmin password will be reset to 'gridguard'. Change password as necessary after upgrading



  • This upgrade requires the GGVA appliance to be at version 5.3.0 or greater. 
  • If you get an error during the upgrade saying there is an issue with your certificates, install all of the certificate point's intermediate certificates as root CA certificates. This is due to an issue with previous versions allowing incomplete certificate installations. After the upgrade is complete, you can delete the intermediate certificates from the root CA store.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Replace username and password with your product download credentials.
