Upgrading Password Policy Manager

Both removal and installation of Password Policy Manager (PPM) requires computer restart. Upgrade PPM on all domain controllers in sequential order. Perform the upgrade during off-peak hours to cause minimal impact to your organization’s operations.

To guarantee that all the passwords in your organization comply with the established policies, Password Policy Manager must be deployed on all domain controllers in the managed domain.

To upgrade from Password Policy Manager version 5.7.1 or later versions

  1. Remove the previous version of Password Policy Manager from a domain controller and restart the computer when prompted. For more information on uninstalling PPM, see Uninstalling Password Policy Manager.

  2. Install the new version of Password Policy Manager on that domain controller and restart the computer when prompted. For more information on installing PPM, see Installing Password Policy Manager.

  3. Repeat the steps 2 and 3 for each domain controller in the managed domain.

If the previous version of Password Policy Manager has been deployed through Group Policy, it should be uninstalled by removing the previously assigned MSI package from the Software installation list. For more information, see Uninstalling Password Policy Manager. After the previous version is removed from the domain controllers, the new version may be deployed to those DCs through Group Policy.

Administrative Templates

The Password Manager distribution package includes Group Policy administrative templates, which you can use to configure the additional features and options that are not available in the Password Manager Administration Console by default.

In the Password Manger installation package, you can find the below mentioned files in the \Password Manager\Setup\Template\Administrative Template\ folder of the installation media.

These administrative templates are supplied in the following files.

File Description
