How do I preserve my configured settings during Security Gateway upgrades?

Whatever Security Gateway settings you've defined will be automatically carried over to the new installation during the upgrade process. The custom.properties file is used to store all your configured Security Gateway settings (proxy, port, memory dumps, etc). The custom.properties file is preserved during Security Gateway upgrade; it's copied in its entirety from your existing installation to the new one. All you need to do is restart Security Gateway.

Note: This feature is available for versions 135 and higher. In earlier versions, the config.properties file was used to manage settings. If you're upgrading from a version of Dynatrace earlier than 135, extract the configuration settings from the existing installation and insert them into the custom.properties file, not config.properties. Please keep in mind that custom.properties takes precedence over config.properties. Therefore, if a setting occurs in both files, the value of the setting in the custom.properties file will take precedence. Also, command line settings (if any) take precedence over those stored in custom.properties.
