You can upgrade a Broker VM from the Cortex XDR management console.

You can upgrade any Broker VM directly from the Cortex XDR management console in the Broker VMs page from both the Brokers and Clusters tab.


For all brokers that were deployed with a Broker VM image, downloaded prior to July 9th, 2023 (installed with Ubuntu 18.04 or earlier), the Broker VM must be reinstalled with a new image (installed with Ubuntu 20.04 or later) before upgrading to the latest version. For more information, see Migrating to a New Broker VM Image.

  1. Select SettingsConfigurationsData BrokerBroker VMs.

  2. In either the Brokers or Clusters tab, locate your Broker VM, right-click, and select Upgrade Broker version.

    Upgrading your Broker VM takes approximately 5 minutes.


    After a Broker VM upgrade, your broker may require a reboot to finish installing important updates. A notification about this will be sent to your Cortex XDR console Notification Center.
