I must be the only person in the world using Docker as the installation page points to the old 6.0.14 ( docker-compose.yml and .ENV ). Could someone please update these to reflect the current 7.16 release?

Also, since the upgrade directions are really lack luster for a docker upgrade, can someone please provide the required steps to upgrade DOCKER from version 6.0.14 to 7.16.

Since the DB is being upgrade, does that mean I need to run docker pull avastsoftware/management-console-db to upgrade the DB or does the new management console do that automatically when I run docker-compose up?

It would be nice if the docker install page was a little more clear on the steps required to upgrade the Avast Docker app.

Please and thank you!

Six days and no reply... I guess I am the only idiot in the world to use Docker.

One last question, the Avast Premise Console 6.0.14 states it is the newest version of the console?

@Hillen, rest assured that you are not alone. I am waiting for this too. Hope someone at Avast finally gets around and pushes the new version to docker hub... Having a dockerized on-premise console was one of the aspects that sparked our interest into Avast products.

Yes, 6.0.14 is the latest version of the docker container as per the Docker Hub page: https://hub.docker.com/r/avastsoftware/management-console/tags

As business customers, you are eligible for support.
Just submit a request on this page: https://www.avast.com/business-support-contact or ask your reseller to escalate the request for you.

I received an email from Avast Support - there is no Docker version 7 yet.

I'm sorry Avast, I have used your security products since Windows NT, and this is the last year we will be your customer. Subscription expires in October, so I will start finding a replacement now.

You are a SECURITY company and you let your customers down consistently as we actually depend on you producing said SECURITY software to PROTECT our companies. I think your company has bit of more than it can chew.

Your delays have caused our field techs SO MANY heartaches because of your botched up FIREWALL settings, that you force us to disable the FIREWALL when on a customers site because there is NO WAY TO MANAGE the firewall properly with Premise Console version 6.

I'm done with your company.

Since I am in desperate need of the new version 7 to fix the horrible Firewall implementation of On Premise console 6, I am now having to spin up a Windows Server to install the version 7 on premise console as a stop gap measure until I replace Avast on our network.

To add insult to injury, the docker version has refused to communicate with any of our clients, internal or external, even though the all have an active connection to the console and nothing has changed on our setup. Prior to this it would not apply the policies evenly to workstations in the same group, but we dealt with it. Nice, just nice!
