Upgrading Callisto On-Premise

You are here:

Upgrade of Callisto is very straightforward, and simple involves running the installation routine on the Callisto server.

Download the latest version of Callisto from the link in the upgrade notification email and run it

To install you will need your license key, which should also be in the email and you will need to know the location of the Callisto database. If you don’t know where your Callisto database is, you can check in the C:\program files (x86)\Callisto\web.config file, check for this entry:

 <connectionStrings>
    <add name="Default" connectionString="Server=localhost\sqlexpress;Database=Callisto;Trusted_Connection=True" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>
  </connectionStrings>

Enter your license key when prompted:

And enter the database server and instance (if required), click test connection to verify

The final page is where we configure the connection strings to the System Center products. Again in an upgrade, we can skip this page and the existing configuration will be maintained.

The installer will now upgrade Callisto
