Upgrading from Active Roles 6.9

Upgrading from Active Roles 6.9 to 7.x version is a side-by-side upgrade, which does not interrupt operations or affect the configuration of the currently installed Active Roles version. To ensure smooth upgrade to the new Active Roles version, upgrade the Administration Service first, and then upgrade the Web Interface.

Active Roles 6.9 components are not used in the upgrade and neither are any components from the earlier version uninstalled.

Before upgrading to the latest version of Active Roles, the add-ons of the earlier versions must be uninstalled.

Impact on Office 365 Add-On
  • After an upgrade of Active Roles components to Active Roles 7.3, the Office 365 add-on which was supported in the earlier versions of Active Roles, ceases to work. Hence, it is recommended to uninstall the Office 365 add-on prior to the upgrade of Active Roles.
  • Office 365 add-on is not supported on Active Roles 7.3 and must be uninstalled prior to the installation of Active Roles 7.1.
  • Active Roles 7.3 manages Office 365 and Azure AD natively.
