The Lumeta 4.3 upgrade package upgrades the Lumeta Enterprise Command Center, Enterprise Scout, and Portal. 

This upgrade will preserve your current configuration for users, roles, organizations, zones, collectors, Scouts, and system connections. The FIPS state (i.e., enabled or disabled) any any changes you've made to the Martian packet logging in vi /etc/sysctl.conf file are maintained during the upgrade. Orphaned attributes (i.e., those not associated with any device) and all certificates are cleaned off of the Lumeta database upon upgrade. 

Custom queries, dashboards and reports do not carry through to the Lumeta 4.3 release. Before upgrading to 4.3, export the DDL of any you want to save. Contact us to extract the custom elements from your DDL file, edit them for compatibility with Lumeta 4.3, and return them to you for importing. See Exporting to Data Definition Language (DDL)  and Importing Dashboards, Reports & DDLs for procedures.
