Upgrading Password Manager

Upgrading Password Manager

This section briefs about the process to upgrade Password Manager to the latest version (5.9.5).

NOTE:

  • It is recommended to back up the current configuration by exporting the settings from 5.7.1 or later versions. For more information, see To export configuration settings from Password Manager for AD LDS 5.7.1 or later versions.
  • Running the Migration Wizard is not required while upgrading from Password Manager 5.7.1 or later versions to 5.9.5.
  • If you want to upgrade to 5.9.x, it is recommended to reinstall the license file from the Administration site once the upgrade is complete. Before installing the license, delete the existing SoftLicense binary value from [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Quest Software] registry key.

  • Any workflows that are customized in the previous versions of Password Manager should be manually merged with the workflow of the latest version of the Password Manager to avoid any end user data corruption.

    For example, changes made to the Register workflow (Self-Service workflows) such as addition/update of any authentication steps to the default configuration, should be manually recreated after upgrade to PM 5.9.5.

  • Replication must be enabled for the successful installation of Password Manager 5.9.5.

  • To update storage files with new encryption mechanism, all realm instances must be updated with the Password Manager 5.9.5 configuration and must have the same encryption key.

    To perform the same, login to PMAdmin site from the primary server, Navigate to General Settings > Import/Export > Export. Copy and Save the password securely. Import this configuration data in all the PM secondary replication instances by selecting the exported configuration data and providing the password.

  • If the secondary instances are not updated with new configuration, a notification will be displayed in Administration site as 'Import configuration settings from primary instance”.

    In the replication instances, Navigate to General Settings > Import/Export > Import, select the exported data from the primary server and input the password saved.

  • Shared.storage file will be encrypted and copied to Active Directory only when all replication instances are updated with Password Manager 5.9.5 configuration and encryption key.

  • When all the realm instances are updated with Password Manager 5.9.5, Q&A profiles of users will be updated with new encryption key when one of the following is performed:

    • User updates Q&A profile

    • Run Migration wizard to update all the user profiles automatically
