Scrutinizer Virtual Appliance Upgrade - For servers with Internet Access

This guide will show you how to upgrade a Scrutinizer Virtual Appliance from version 11.52 to 16.11

You are now finished and up to date
  • If you would like to double check the version. You can cd to /home/plixer/scrutinizer/bin and run ./scrut_util.exe -v (pre 16.7) In 16.7 and above run scrut_util.exe and type version at the SCRUTINIZER> prompt.
  • This along with the web interface can verify what version you are currently on.
  • If the version on the front end is incorrect, try dumping the browsers cache first (ctrl+F5)
