Updates / Upgrades

PA Server Monitor can be upgraded by simply installing the latest version on top of your existing installation. Your settings and databases will be upgraded as needed.

You might need to reset the PA Server Monitor service's Run As account (from Settings or the Windows Services applet), but other than that no further configuration changes will be needed.

This is going to be a very busy year for us - and this product is a God-send. The learning curve here is NOT steep, the support outstanding. PA Monitor - just gets it done.
