Before you upgrade the existing server, ensure that no active client sessions are running. Upgrading the server without doing this can result in abnormally terminated client processes and a loss of information.
Verify that clients are no longer accessing Web or File Transfer Protocol (FTP) sites by completing the following steps:
Prevent new clients from accessing the sites by pausing the sites.
For more information about how to pause Web or FTP sites, see Pause Web or FTP Sites.
Enable monitoring of active Web and FTP connections.
For more information about how to monitor the active Web and FTP connections, see Monitor Active Web and FTP Connections.
When the number of active Web and FTP counters is zero, disable the network adapter that clients use to access the Web server.
For more information about how to disable the network adapter used by clients, see Disable Network Adapters.
