LEM virtual appliances require specific upgrade paths. When you upgrade the virtual appliance, SolarWinds recommends upgrading the desktop and reports console versions to ensure they connect properly to the upgraded LEM virtual appliance. During the upgrade, the web console is upgraded as well.

See Adjust the Global Automatic Updates setting for information about configuring Windows agents to update automatically.

The following table describes how to access the version for each component.
