Upgrades to Signiant SDCX Servers, previously known as Media Shuttle Storage Servers, add new features and stability improvements to your on-premises storage. Upgrade your SDCX Server routinely to get the best transfer performance and security when using Media Shuttle.
To complete an upgrade of an on-premises server, it may be necessary to uninstall your Signiant SDCX Server. See Installing and Uninstalling Storage Servers.
You can check the installed Signiant SDCX Server version on the Storage tab in your IT Administration Console.
If your organization is not using the most recent release, you can upgrade your SDCX Server using an automated or manual download.
Your Signiant SDCX Server checks for updates every day at 00:00h local time to determine if there is a new version available to download. Whenever a new version becomes available, the SDCX Server downloads an installer to your application's
update folder in your Media Shuttle application folder.
Note: Your SDCX Server will also download any available updates whenever the storage service restarts. If your server has already downloaded the installer, your server will install the upgrade automatically when the service restarts.
To upgrade your SDCX server:
C:\Program Files\Signiant Media Shuttle.
.exefile to start the upgrade.
To upgrade your SDCX Server:
install.shto start the upgrade.
Upgrading your SDCX Server briefly stops the Media Shuttle service, and Media Shuttle is not accessible while the services are stopped.
If any transfers to your SDCX Server are in progress when the upgrade starts, you have the option to cancel the installation and wait for the transfers to finish before installation.
Note: Media Shuttle upgrades do not require a new registration key unless the server software is uninstalled prior to an upgrade.
After completing the upgrade, you can verify its completion by checking the version number in your IT Administration Console.
If you have disabled automatic updates for your Signiant SDCX Server, you must manually download Media Shuttle updates from the IT Administration Console or through a link below.
