Updating the HSM Client Software

To update the HSM Client software, first uninstall any previous version of the Client. Then, run the new installer the same way you performed the original installation (refer to HSM Client Software Installation).

The client uninstaller removes libraries, utilities, and other material related to the client, but does not remove configuration files and certificates. This allows you to install the newer version and resume operations without having to manually restore configuration settings and re-register client and appliance NTLS certificates.

TIP   Thales recommends verifying the integrity of the HSM Client packages, by calculating their SHA256 hash values and comparing with the hash values posted on the Support Portal, before installing them on your client machines.

You can use the sha256sum tool on Linux machines to calculate the SHA256 hash values.
