Determine your upgrade path to the latest version of SEM

The SEM 2020.2.1 appliance upgrade package upgrades SEM appliances running version 6.4 and later. If you need an upgrade package for an earlier version of SEM or TriGeo SIM (no longer supported), open a Customer Support ticket.

The following table lists the full upgrade paths from all prior SEM versions to the latest version.

During the upgrade process, if SMB1 is disabled, you must upgrade to 6.3.1 hotfix 7 to perform an iso upgrade before moving to version 6.4.
