Impact on Active Roles replication
The upgrade process of the Administration Service does not preserve the replication settings. An upgrade can only be performed if the Administration Service is not configured for replication. Before upgrading the Administration Service, you should ensure that its database server is not configured as a Subscriber or Publisher. Replication for the new Administration Service needs to be configured after the upgrade.
An upgrade of Active Roles components may affect custom solutions that build upon the functions of Active Roles. Custom solutions (such as scripts or other modifications) that work fine with the earlier version of Active Roles may cease to work after the upgrade. Prior to attempting an upgrade, test the existing solutions with the new version of Active Roles in a lab environment to verify that the solutions continue to work. For any compatibility issues arising during the test process, contact One Identity Software Professional Services for paid assistance with those solutions.
Upgrade of the Administration Service converts unmanaged domains to regular managed domains. If you have any domains registered as unmanaged domains with Active Roles version 6.8 or earlier, then, after the upgrade, you will need to make them unmanaged by applying the built-in Policy Object Exclude from Managed Scope. For further information and instructions, see “Configuring an unmanaged domain” in the Active Roles Administration Guide.
After an upgrade of Active Roles components to the latest version, the add-ons which were supported in the earlier versions of Active Roles, cease to work. Hence, it is recommended to uninstall the add-ons prior to the upgrade of Active Roles.
NOTE: Office 365 add-on is not supported on Active Roles 7.5.3.
