Update Appliance

You can download updates from the Tenable Virtual Appliance 4.8 section of the Tenable Downloads page. The update(s) should be stored locally before performing the installation. Update packages can be applied to either the hardware or VM version of the Appliance unless otherwise noted.

To apply the update, click Choose File, then browse to the location that the update file was saved. A green banner will display if the update is successful. A red banner will display if the update is unsuccessful stating the problem that caused the error. After applying the update, the license will be shown again.

The update can be confirmed by viewing the version information in the Appliance tab.

Note: The best practice is to store locally. Storing locally prevents issues with browser upload.

Update Availability Detection

The Appliance has the ability to check for updates. When an update has been detected, a banner will appear at the top of the interface until it is installed.

Click the Configure Automatic Update Detection button to set up automatic checks. The system is set to Apply Updates Automatically by default. Selecting the Check for Updates Automatically option alerts the user to updates in the interface, but does not apply them without user intervention. This feature cannot be disabled.

In addition, an HTTP proxy may be configured. This proxy setting only applies to the Update Availability Detection option.
