System & Software Maintenance

This section discusses a number of general maintenance tasks and includes operations like downgrading Solace PubSub+ software, backing up and restoring configuration database files, and shutting down and restarting redundant message brokers that are using Guaranteed Messaging.


The procedures associated with upgrading software are described in the Upgrade Procedures section for software message brokers, and in the appliance Upgrade Procedures section.

The information provided in this section is not restricted to specific software and hardware versions. However, the message brokers within a messaging network cannot differ by more than one major or minor software version. Also, features available to a newer release don't work with message brokers that are running older releases.
