  • 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


  • 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.
