The server components that you must upgrade include View Connection Server, View Client, and View Agent. Depending on the optional components you use, you might also need to upgrade View Composer. If you plan to use View Client with Local Mode, you must also install or upgrade a View Transfer Server instance.

Depending on how large your View deployment is, you might perform the upgrade process incrementally, over several maintenance windows.
