Upgrading Vaults

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.

Important information

  • The vault upgrade makes it incompatible with older M-Files Server versions.
  • If you have recently done the Verify and Repair (Quick) operation and issues were found, make sure that they are fixed before you upgrade the vault.
