    • This operation requires devices to reboot and might take several minutes to complete.
    • The web application does not allow you to update applications for devices with a disabled connection status.
    Verify the latest application is running on a device. Compare the Configured Version and Latest Version columns in the device table to see if a more recent application version is available on the server.
