Running the Migration Wizard

NOTE: In the file in ProgramData folder of primary instance, verify whether AESEncryption value is true in all hosts. After installing Password Manager 5.14.0 and importing the configuration file into secondary instances, replication from all Password Manager instances takes time to update the hosts’ information and to set AESEncryption value to true. If the AESEncryption value is not true, when you run the Migration Wizard 5.14.0, it displays the error message with the list of hosts which are not updated with Password Manager 5.14.0 configuration.

NOTE: Set AESEncryption value to true in all the hosts and run the Migration Wizard 5.14.0 under Password Manager Service account.

To run the Migration Wizard 5.14.0, see To update users’ Q&A profiles with new instance settings and clear old Q&A data for user objects in Active Directory.

NOTE: In older version Password Manager, if you are using an existing database, after installing the Password Manager 5.14.0, disconnect SQL connection and reconnect with the same or a new database.

NOTE: After installing Password Manager 5.14.0, if service account has to be modified, see Modifying the service account.

Modifying the service account

Service accounts are used to install Password Manager. This section describes how to modify your service account.

NOTE: If you want to modify the service account after installing Password Manager 5.14.0, you cannot modify it by changing the account on Password Manager service because the new account will not be able to read the current configuration.

  1. On the menu bar, click General Settings, then click the Import/Export tab and export the configuration file of the primary instance of Password Manager.

    NOTE: Due to security enhancements, a complex password is generated while exporting the configuration. You must remember the password or store it in a secure place, to use while importing the configuration.

  2. Stop the Password Manager Service.

  3. At the command prompt, type services.msc and select Password Manager Service in the console and change the log on details.

  4. Start the Password Manager Service.

    NOTE: Before you continue, it is recommended to back up the One Identity folder at C:\ProgramData.

  5. Delete the One Identity folder at C:\ProgramData.

  6. Restart the computer.

  7. Open the Administration Site.

  8. On the Instance Initialization page, select Unique instance and click Save.

  9. On the menu bar, click General Settings, then click the Import/Export tab and import the configuration file, which was exported before changing the service account.

Converting Q&A Profiles

After you have configured Password Manager 5.14.0, you can convert users’ Q&A profiles to make it compatible with the latest Password Manager version. To convert Q&A profiles, you must use the Migration Wizard.

When converting users’ Q&A profiles, specify whether to convert profiles of all users belonging to the user scope, users in a specified group or users of a Management policy. You can also select whether to convert Q&A profiles in test or production mode.


  • Before converting users’ Q&A profiles it is recommended to prevent users from accessing the Self-Service Site. For more information, see To specify groups or OUs that are denied access to the Self-Service Site.

  • To avoid bad data error during user migration, run the migration wizard in test mode. View the report to check if the user information have been migrated successfully.

To convert Q&A profiles

  1. On the computer where Password Manager is installed, run the Migration Wizard from the Password Manager autorun window. It is recommended to run the Migration Wizard under the Password Manager Service account.

  2. On the Welcome page, select the Convert users’ Q&A profiles task.

  3. In the Select management policy drop-down box, select the Management Policy to convert Q&A profiles of users from its user scope and click Next.

  4. On the second page, do one of the following and click Next:

    • Click All users from the user scope to convert Q&A profiles of all users from the user scope of the selected Management Policy.

    • Click The following groups to specify the groups of users whose Q&A profiles will be converted. To select groups, click Add and do the following:

      • In the Add Groups dialog, enter the group name, select the domain from the list and click Search.

      • Select the required groups in the list and click Save.

  5. On the third page, do one of the following and click Next:

    • Click Convert Q&A profiles in test mode to covert profiles in test mode. The existing profiles will not be replaced.

    • Click Convert Q&A profiles in production mode to convert profiles in production mode. All existing profiles will be replaced.

  6. On the status page, click View the report for detailed information to view a detailed account of profile conversion. If you converted Q&A profiles in test mode, click Convert Q&A profiles in production mode.

  7. Click Finish to close the wizard.

    IMPORTANT: After profile conversion, some users may not be able to edit their Q&A profiles. Such users will be able to reset their passwords and unlock accounts on the Self-Service Site, but if they want to edit their Q&A profiles, they will be forced to create new Q&A profiles.

    If users’ Q&A profiles have been skipped during profile conversion, such users will not be able to use Password Manager 5.14.0 until they create new Q&A profiles.

Upgrading Secure Password Extension

You can centrally upgrade workstations to the latest version of Secure Password Extension by assigning the software for deployment using Group Policy. It is recommended to remove the existing MSI package from the Software installation list, and then assign the latest-version package.

To remove the existing and assign a latest-version package

  1. Remove the assigned package (Quest One Secure Password Extension x86.msi or Quest One Secure Password Extension x64.msi) from the list of software to be installed.

  2. Add the latest-version MSI packages to the list of software to be installed.

When upgrading Secure Password Extension, do not forget to upgrade the prm_gina.admx administrative template with the one located in the \Password Manager\Setup\Template\Administrative Template\ folder of the installation media.

During the upgrade of prm_gina.admx administrative template, the previously made template settings are preserved and picked up by newer versions.
