Application Dependencies

When you install or update an application, StorNext Connect installs or updates any other apps on which the application depends. The application dependencies are installed or updated to the minimum version required, which is not necessarily the latest version of the application. Make sure to check the App Store for additional updates after installing or updating an app.
