ESMC 7.2 VA: how to do an operating system upgrade

Recommended Posts


got this ESMC VA server that was upgraded (no migrate) from 7.1. It indicates that it needs an operating system update, but I'm offered two options: update operating system and update operating system (custom settings). I recall I could find info about these two options, but now I can't find anything that explains the difference.

Could you point out some links and/or advice on which option I should choose? Thanks in advance!

Also please note the need to go extra-conservative here: this is the ESMC VA server I'm talking about. I can recall at least 3-4 times whereas updating the server actually broke it and had to restore the entire VA from a previous backup...

The first option opens this window where you just click Update to install OS updates:


The second option enables you to custom the Operating update task update:


I for one am not aware any issues with ESMC after update except when the user updated the OS and MySQL himself and an unsupported version of the ODBC connector was installed. It's standard OS update commands that the task runs.
