- make sure your backup is current (ongoing incremental backup, should be the norm for servers)
- stop all SAS services
- perform the upgrade
- start all SAS services (or reboot the server, as services should start automatically)

The Deployment Manager handles this.
After the upgrade: test your services if all are working as before.
