There is no problem to keep the "Appliance Base Image" at, but is recommended that you upgrade your base image too.

And the Base Image can only be upgrade via re-image of the ACS SE.

Base Image contains fix/updates related to base OS, for example,

The ACS SE base image contains the following Microsoft hotfixes,


Briefing the procedure,

- Upgrade ACS SE to version from 3.3.4

- Take a backup of the upgraded database

- Then re-image the ACS SE with the recovery CD for the appropriate ACS SE model i.e. 1111, 1112 or 1113 (for 1113 you might want to re-image it with recovery CD

- Then restore the database backup.
