Edge Encryption proxy server upgrades

You must manually update each Edge Encryption proxy.

When you update a proxy, a backup is made, new encryption properties are added to the bottom of the encryption.properties file, the proxy shuts down, and the proxy restarts. The proxy is offline for only a short time.

Mixed proxy-version environments

You can run old versions of the proxy with new versions of the proxy on the same instance with the following limitations:
  • If a proxy running the Geneva version of software is registered with the instance, you cannot use the instance to assign a default key.
  • If you have assigned a default key using the instance, a Geneva version of the proxy cannot register with the instance.
