Notes:

  • The Linux patch will only work if the application is hosted on the root of tomcat or on /sysaid (it will not run well on any other directory name).
  • SysAid Release 7.5 or higher is needed in order to upgrade to SysAid 9.
  • To start using SysAid MDM capabilities, you must be running Tomcat 7 or above.
  • The 64 bit Windows upgrade can only be used if your initial SysAid installation was 64 bit. If you are not sure, you can try installing the 64 bit upgrade, and you will be prompted if it is incorrect. In that case, simply install the 32 bit upgrade.
  • SysAid Release 9.0 and higher for Linux/Unix/Mac requires SUN Java 1.7 or higher and Tomcat 7 to be installed on the SysAid server.
