  • If the client machine restarts during the upgrade, then you must manually upgrade or rollback the client version.
  • After triggering the update, if you have any ongoing backup and restore jobs, they will resume after the upgrade.
  • If the old version is not present on the client machine, then upgrade rollback will fail. In this scenario, you must manually upgrade or rollback the client.
