You can upgrade to Symantec Advanced Threat Protection 2.0.2 from version 2.0.0 or 2.0.1.

When a software update is available, you see the following notification in the upper right corner of ATP Manager: ATP Needs Attention. When you hover over this notification, you see the following message: Software update available. Additionally, an email is sent to all of your administrators notifying them of the update.

Do the following when you update the software on your physical appliance or virtual appliance:

  • Run a backup.

    • To mitigate risks, complete a full backup before you perform a software update.

  • Upgrade the management platform (CIU) before you upgrade remote scanners.

  • Click the Update Software button only once.

    • If you click the button more than once, you may experience unexpected behavior.

  • Do not power off your appliance or restart ATP during the upgrade process.

  • Do not change any of your configuration settings during the upgrade process.

    • If you change your settings during the upgrade process, you may corrupt your database.

  • Note: The System Health notification indicating that there's a pending software upgrade no longer appears after the upgrade finishes.
