You MUST make sure that ALL users are logged out of Orion before starting to upgrade/update the system
  • Not Hosted Sites: The Orion application MUST be closed/logged off from from each PC/workstation. An extra step to ensure updates complete without any issues is to shut down all workstations.
  • Citrix hosted sites: You MUST close the application BEFORE closing the citrix connection.
    • Orion is still open and has a connection to the database if this isn't done and the update WILL NOT HAPPEN without errors
