warning

Warning

ESMC Web Console upgrade works only if Apache Tomcat was installed via the All-in-one installer. The ESMC Web Console upgrade is not supported if a custom version of Apache Tomcat is installed (manual installation of the Tomcat service via service.bat).

Apache Tomcat upgrade will delete the era folder located in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\[ Tomcat folder ]\webapps\. If you use the era folder to store additional data, make sure to backup the data before upgrading.

If C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\[ Tomcat folder ]\webapps\ contains additional data (other than the era and ROOT folders), the Apache Tomcat upgrade will not take place and only the Web Console will be upgraded.
