  2. Install the new Client and Jobserver(s).

For Alfresco Scanner/Importer: In case you have installed the Alfresco Scanner and/or Importer, please uninstall the old Alfresco AMP files and re-install the new Alfresco AMP files as described in the Alfresco Scanner and Alfresco Importer User Guides.

    Hi Mark,

    If we are already in MC 3.15, should we run the DB installer to upgrade the database?

    Best regards,
