Frequently Asked Questions

Q.       How do I upgrade from the release candidate to the RTM?

A.       We recommend that you re-run the packaging process of the MED-V image using the latest MED-V Workspace Packager. You can then deploy the updated Host Agent and MED-V workspace to computers in your production environment.
