DomainService- How to update versions

TechIDManager DomainService does not do auto-updates. There are two reasons for this.

  1. RuffianSoftware has chosen to NOT do remote code execution. This is for every specific security concerns and to limit attack vectors. Every place that TechIDManager is installed also has an RMM agent installed capable of doing any update process that is needed, so we make the update process completely scriptable and easy to implement in any RMM.
  2. Auto update has been hacked with serious consequences too many time to count recently, so we refuse to be a target for that kind of attack.

To update TechIDManager DomainService on a machine. Run these steps on that machine.

  1. In an administrative command prompt from the directory where DomainService.exe was installed run:
    1. DomainService.exe stop
  2. Copy the latest zip file containing the new version to the same directory and extract the contents, overwriting all files.
  3. In an administrative command prompt from the directory where DomainService.exe was just extracted run:
    1. DomainService.exe update
  4. That’s all folks. All previously set options are maintained.
