What you will need to do

Install the latest Storage Platform Console. This is important as anything older than 18.3 will no longer be able to connect. If you try, it will fail and prompt you to upgrade.

Your customers backup software will automatically upgrade to the latest version.

If you’d like to upgrade any SE or D&L accounts to ESE to get all the benefits of the new ESE agent, then please contact our support team who will be able to assist with this.
