To keep the ZTNA Connectors up-to-date, you can update their software version. You also might be required to upgrade your connectors to support a new feature or functionality.
When a new ZTNA Connector version is released, the connectors in your deployment are checked and, if the released version is newer than the existing version, or if all connectors in the group are not on the same version, icons in the Connector Group area shows that an update is available. If you choose to update the connectors, you are given an option to upgrade the entire group together. Upgrading a group automatically upgrades all connectors in that group in paralell. You cannot upgrade individual connectors.
A ZTNA Connector takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes to upgrade and the connector is rebooted during this process. Palo Alto Networks recommends that you schedule a connector upgrade during a down time or a scheduled network outage.
