- An updated license file needs to be downloaded, and the service restarted.
- All users of client software (CLC Workbenches and the CLC Server Command Line Tools) must upgrade their software. Corresponding and compatible software versions are listed at the bottom of the Latest Improvement listings for a given server version. e.g. for the latest release, this can be found at: http://www.qiagenbioinformatics.com/products/clc-genomics-server/latest-improvements/current-line/.
- All plugins installed on the CLC Server need to be updated. See Server plugins. Plugins can be downloaded from http://www.qiagenbioinformatics.com/plugins/.
- On job nodes, any new tools included in the server upgrade will need to be enabled for the nodes you wish them to be run on. New tools are initially disabled on all job nodes to avoid interfering with a setup where certain nodes are dedicated to running specific types of jobs. Read more about enabling tools on job nodes in Configuring your setup.
Important note when upgrading on macOS to CLC Genomics Server 11.0 or higher from earlier major release lines A flag in the CLCGenomicsServer.vmoptions file must be removed when upgrading in place from CLC Genomics Server 10.x or earlier to CLC Genomics Server 11.x or later on macOS. Please delete "-d64" from the CLCGenomicsServer.vmoptions file, which can be found in the CLC Genomics Server installation area and then restart the CLC Genomics Server service. The -d64 option is not supported by recent versions of java. Its inclusion in the vmoptions file on macOS systems will stop the CLC Genomics Server 11.0, and any later versions, from starting up.
