This document highlights new features and significant updates in cnMaestro On-Premises.
Important: OVA Upgrade
cnMaestro 5.0.0 On-Premises is distributed as an OVA file, which can be installed as a new Virtual Machine or used to update an existing installation running cnMaestro 4.1.0.
Update 2/13: Customers should upgrade 3.2.0 and 4.0.1 installations to 4.1.0 before upgrading to 5.0.0.
Important: System Backup
It is strongly recommended to take a System Backup prior to upgrading to 5.0.0. This can be done in the UI at Administration > Server > Operations. This is required in case you ever want to downgrade to the previous version.
Graphical and Data reports can be emailed to as many as 5 recipients.
