Server - Z Upgrade
This update procedure covers simple package updates or a concerted micro update, which is also known as a maintenance update (MU). During a MU the user stops services, updates packages, runs the script to update the database, and restarts services.
This means first you ensure that you have the latest version of all installed packages installed. Then you can upgrade the database schema.
