Upgrade to the Latest Software Release
To keep your deployment in compliance and get the latest features, functionality, bug fixes, and security enhancements, you must always upgrade to the latest version of Cisco Directory Connector. If you do not upgrade to the latest version that's available, you may experience issues, such as Cisco Directory Connector no longer synchronizing properly or being on a version that doesn't support the mandatory TLS 1.2 requirement.
Cisco Directory Connector automatically notifies you when a new version is available. Always upgrade to the latest version to avoid problems. You also see a notification in the Windows task bar.
Although you can manually install connector software updates updates, we recommend that you follow the steps in Set Automatic Upgrades to let the app manage your upgrades automatically.
Before you begin
We recommend performing an upgrade at your earliest convenience during a maintenance window.
Prepare one hour for the upgrade and note that provisioning and deprovisioning will not work during this time.
Either click on the notification in the Windows taskbar, or right-click on the Cisco Directory Connector icon in the Windows taskbar to start the upgrade process.
Follow the instructions to complete the upgrade.
Relaunch the connector and sign in with your admin credentials.
Verify the version number of the software under.
