Setup requirements

For customers with Feature Packs installed on AEM 6.4. Optional Feature Packs provided by Adobe have dependencies on the release version and service pack. If you have any Feature Pack installed, please contact the AEM Customer Care team to validate the compatibility of those feature packs with this service pack for AEM 6.4.
  • AEM requires AEM 6.4. For details, see upgrade documentation .
  • The Service Pack download is available on Software Distribution portal for download.
  • On a deployment with MongoDB and multiple instances, install AEM on one of the Author instances using the Package Manager.
  • Before installing the service pack, ensure to have a snapshot or fresh backup of your AEM instance.
  • Restart the instance before installation. While that is only needed when the instance is still in update mode (and this is the case when the instance was just updated from an earlier version), it's generally recommended if the instance was running for longer period of time.
Adobe does not recommend removing or uninstalling the AEM package.

Install the Service Pack via Package Manager

Perform the following steps to install the Service Pack on an existing AEM 6.4 instance:
  1. Download the package from Software Distribution.
  2. In AEM, login to Package Manager and add the downloaded AEM package. Select the uploaded package and click Install .
Dialog on Package Manager UI sometimes exits immaturely during installation of
Therefore, it is recommended to wait for error logs to stabilize before accessing the instance. The user has to wait for specific logs related to uninstallation of updater bundle before being ensured that the installations is successful. It generally happens on Safari but can intermittently happen on any browser.

Automatic installation

There are two ways to automatically install AEM into a running instance:
A. Place the package into .. /crx-quickstart/install folder while the server is running. The package gets installed automatically.
B. Use the HTTP API from Package Manager - make sure you use cmd=install&recursive=true - so the nested package are installed.
AEM does not support Bootstrap installation.

Validate installation

  1. The Product Information page (*/system/console/ productinfo *) should now show the updated version string "Adobe Experience Manager, Version" under Installed Products.
  2. All OSGI bundles are either ACTIVE or FRAGMENT in the OSGI Console (Use Web Console: /system/console/bundles).
  3. The OSGI bundle org.apache.jackrabbit.oak-core is on version 1.8.17 or higher (Use Web Console: /system/console/bundles).
To determine the certified platform for running with this release of AEM Sites and Assets, see Technical Requirements .
On successful installation of the package, an >informational message appears indicating that the content >package has installed successfully, such as "Content Package AEM-6.4-Service-Pack-7 installed successfully."

Update Dynamic Media Viewers (5.10.1)

AEM contains new version of Dynamic Media viewers (5.10.1) which enables check for duplicate names on Image Preset page. Dynamic Media customers are advised to run the following command to bring out of the box viewer presets to an up-to-date state.
