Upgrade Advisory

As a network administrator, you might manage many ADC instances running on different ADC releases in Citrix ADM. Monitoring the lifecycle of each ADC instance can be a cumbersome task. You must visit Citrix Product Matrix, identify the ADC instances that are reaching or reached End of Life (EOL) or End of Maintenance (EOM). Then, plan their upgrade.

Upgrade advisory helps you monitor the lifecycle of your ADC instances. It identifies instances that are reaching EOL/EOM, and you can plan ADC upgrades ahead of EOL or EOM date.

Upgrade advisory performs a version scan on the ADcs and provides a view of the EOM/EOL builds across your ADC instances.

You can select and onboard one of the ADC instances to ADM Service. Click Try ADM Service, and onboard an ADC instance to view detailed insights. For more information on the ADM Service Upgrade advisory feature, preview the gif animation on the on the Upgrade advisory page.
