This section discusses considerations that impact the upgrade procedure for Monitoring Console, followed by a description of the procedure itself.
The upgrade of Monitoring Console software to Java ES 5 Update 1 takes into account the following considerations:
In a maintenance upgrade, you do not have to migrate schema, configuration, security or user data.
The Release 5U1 Monitoring Console upgrade patches for Windows are shown in the following table:
Monitoring Console core
Monitoring Console localization
The localized patch files are delivered within the core patch.
The procedure documented below applies to Monitoring Console instances residing locally on the computer where the upgrade is taking place.

You can stop Monitoring Console by stopping SJWC.
For example, you can stop the default SJWC instance from the command line.
