With the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 fast approaching, you will want to think about the steps for upgrading the Web Client. At this point in time you do not have to upgrade the Web Client when you upgrade the Rich Client (Desktop Client) however we do always recommend being on the latest and greatest in regards to these releases since new features are added and previous issues are fixed.
When upgrading the Web Client, you will want to verify whether you are in a single or multi server environment. If you are running in a single server environment, you’re upgrading the Session Central Service and Session Service on one server. If you are running a multi-server environment you will want to be sure that you are installing the Session Central Service update on the Session Central Server. The same goes for the Session Service server. Also, if you are running multiple Session Service Servers, you will want to be sure that you are upgrading both of them so that they are the same Web Client version. Please see below for some quick instructions on how to upgrade a single server environment or a multi-server environment. Please note, there are special instructions if you happen to be running Tenant Services. You would want to refer to the Install and Administration Guide.
Please check back to this blog in the future for a link to the official upgrade documentation for both Web Client and Tenant Services.
