Update Procedure

It is recommended that you disable any anti-virus, anti-malware, or firewall products while performing this update.  Part of the process is to monitor the status of the install and some security programs will close these connections that are needed for monitoring as being possibly invasive.  If you have issues with the update process, please try a different browser, different computer, or temporarily disable programs such as McAfee or Symantec.
It is possible that two steps will be required for this update. Each step requires a reboot which will disable your stream during the reboot process.  Please note that while no loss of data is expected, it is suggested that you have documented any information regarding server configuration needed. A screenshot of your existing configurations will be sufficient.
