  • Examine the release note for a patch:
    • Run command "patch -p <SMG_VERSION> notes"

  • Download patch:

  • Execute pre-update checks:
    • Run command "patch -p <SMG_VERSION> check"
  • Install patch. If patches are not already downloaded, step 3 is omitted, patches are downloaded as well.
    • Run command "patch -p <SMG_VERSION> install"

    • Run command "show --version"
    • (NOTE: At this time there is no way to determine patch version from the Control Center web interface)
