Release Upgrade Checklist for Database Agents

To make sure you complete all the tasks necessary for upgrading your Database Agents after a release, we recommend following the instructions in our upgrade checklist. This guide is not release-specific and can be referenced for any release.



  1. Review the Product Announcements and Alerts page for details on any intermediate versions between the current version of your instance and the version you are targeting.

  2. Review the compatibility matrix in our Community and technical documentation for various components of the AppDynamics environment.


Upgrading Database Agents

  1. Tip! Before upgrading, we recommend completing two backups:
    1. Backup your previous installation of the Controller.
    2. Backup the <db_agent_home> directory so you can revert to the previous installation if required. To maintain the same configuration information, you will also need the <db_agent_home>\conf\controller-info.xml file.
  2. If you are upgrading both the Controller and agents, upgrade the Controller before upgrading the agents.
  3. See Upgrade the Database Agent for important upgrade notes and step-by-step instructions.


Instructions for upgrading other AppDynamics components are available in our general Release Upgrade Checklist
