This topic describes how to perform an installation of Carbon Black EDR Unified View on a system that has no previous version installed.
This release of Carbon Black EDR Unified View supports only 6-series Carbon Black EDR servers and above. To manage 5-series Carbon Black EDR servers and earlier with Carbon Black EDR Unified View, you must use a separate Carbon Black EDR Unified View (CB-Fed) version 1.1.0, which is available from the Carbon Black yum repository. You cannot manage Carbon Black EDR 5- and 6-series servers from a single Carbon Black EDR Unified View server.
This release of Carbon Black EDR Unified View does not support in-place upgrades from the earliest Carbon Black EDR Unified View versions, named CB-Fed v.1.x.x, but does allow you to upgrade from Carbon Black EDR Unified View 6.1.3. See Upgrading from an Earlier Release.
