Existing 2.3 Installations

If you already updated to Security Onion 2.3.140 successfully, then you don't need to install this hotfix.

WARNING! If you have an existing Security Onion 2.3 installation and update to Security Onion 2.3.140 or higher, the Elastic components will undergo a major version upgrade to version 8.

Please be aware that custom settings in Kibana may be overwritten during upgrade. We recommend that you test the upgrade process on a test deployment before deploying to production. If you have a distributed deployment, then we recommend monitoring SOC Grid while your update is running to verify that all nodes update properly. If there are issues, you can review logs, services, and containers for any additional clues. If you need help, please see our support information below.
