Stop the Inventory Server before minor upgrade

On the computer hosting the Alloy Discovery 8 Inventory Server, stop the Inventory Server using the Inventory Server Manager:

  1. Run the Inventory Server Manager from the Windows Start menu (Start > Alloy Software > Inventory Server Manager) or using the Alloy Control Panel.
  2. Enter the name or IP address of the SQL server that hosts your Alloy Discovery 8 database, provide Alloy Discovery 8 administrative credentials, and choose the database name.
  3. Click Stop.
  4. Click OK to exit the Inventory Server Manager.

If you have several Inventory Server instances for your Alloy Discovery 8 database, you must stop every instance.
