Upgrading a Document Vault

Note: This content is no longer updated. For the latest content, please go to the user guide for M-Files Online. For information on the supported product versions, refer to our lifecycle policy.

If the internal database structure of the document vault changes, which usually happens during a software upgrade, the document vault must be upgraded. During a software upgrade, this is done automatically for all the vaults that are in the online state. If the vault is offline during a software upgrade, it can only be used after it has been manually upgraded. To do this, right-click a vault in M-Files Admin and select Operations > Upgrade from the context menu.

Note: Upgrading a document vault makes it incompatible with older M-Files Server versions.
