Upgrade from 8.5 and 9.0

You can upgrade Netwrix Auditor 8.5 and 9.0 to 9.5 by running the installation package. Netwrix Auditor automatically upgrades to the latest version while preserving its configuration.

Before You Start

  1. Make sure you followed basic precaution measures. See Upgrade to the Latest Version for more information.
  2. Wait for all running data collections to complete and shut down Netwrix Auditor.
  3. Review upgrade limitations and considerations. See Review Upgrade Limitations and Considerations for more information.

    If upgrading from Netwrix Auditor 8.5, it might be helpful to review your Netwrix Auditor configuration and read the following topics before running the upgrade: Review Differences from 8.5 and Upgrade from 8.5 and 9.0.

Perform Upgrade

Run the installation package on the computer, where Netwrix Auditor Server resides. Refer to Install the Product for detailed instructions on how to install Netwrix Auditor.

Review Upgrade Limitations and Considerations

  • For 9.5, some reports were updated and redesigned. Review your subscriptions to the following reports since they may become inoperable:

    • Administrative Group Members
    • Object Permissions by Object—Renamed into Folder and File Permission Details.
  • In 9.5, Netwrix Auditor introduces the risk score concept and behavior anomalies assessment dashboard. All alerts that were originally shipped with 9.0 will be assigned a risk score suggested by Netwrix industry experts and included in behavior anomalies assessment. User alerts will not be modified—you should assign risk scores manually.
  • Saved searches are renamed into custom reports. Unlike a previous version, now they are located in Reports Custom.
