Process of Completing Upgrade Kit Creation
The remaining three steps in the process of creating an upgrade kit are activating, applying, and distributing the kit.
- Activating an Upgrade Kit. This step gathers all the files for the upgrade and creates a single compressed archive file.
- Applying an Upgrade Kit. This step updates the compiled information string in the database with the new version information. During this step, if you have not already done so, you indicate whether or not a kit will be required.
- Distributing Upgrade Kits. This step makes the upgrade kit available to designated subscribers as either a required kit or an optional kit, depending on your selection in Step 2 of this process.
NOTE: There are additional instructions for distributing database schema upgrade kits. For information, see Performing Database Schema Updates.
