IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTES:
When upgrading from a version prior to 10.1.x, you will need to review the connection definitions. See the
Installation Guide or this FAQ (https://customers.meshiq.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500001339321) for details.
In Summary, 10.1.x and higher move the management of Workgroup server connections from a user task to an administrator task. However, since existing definitions may have various attributes, a first step after
upgrading is for an administrator to review the generated ones (names start GEN_), rename them and clean up any that are not required.
If upgrading to Scheduler 1.11 to a later version and you want to preserve currently scheduled jobs, a manual SQL statement must be run.
Please contact your Support Representative for help with this step.
