Before you upgrade

Because the Privilege Manager for Unix 6.x native platform installer packages do not provide an automated rollback script, One Identity highly recommends that you back up important data such as your license, pm.settings file, policy, and log files before you attempt to upgrade your existing Privilege Manager policy servers.

To install Privilege Manager 6.x, change to the directory where the install package is located for your platform and run the package installer. See Installing the Privilege Manager packages for details about how to install the Privilege Manager for Unix software.

Upgrading Privilege Manager packages

Privilege Manager has the following three packages:

  • Server (qpm-server)
  • PM Agent (qpm-agent) - Used by Privilege Manager for Unix only
  • Sudo Plugin (qpm-plugin) - Used by Privilege Manager for Sudo only

These packages are mutually exclusive, that is, you can only install one of these packages on a host at any given time.

For more information on installing/upgrading the Sudo Plugin, see the One Identity Privilege Manager for Sudo Administration Guide.

Upgrading the server package

To upgrade the server package

  1. Change to the directory containing the qpm-server package for your specific platform. For example, on a 64-bit Red Hat Linux system, run:
    # cd server/linux-x86_64
  2. Run the platform-specific installer. For example, run:
    # rpm –-upgrade qpm-server-*.rpm

Upgrading the PM Agent package

To upgrade the PM Agent package

  1. Change to the directory containing the qpm-agent package for your specific platform. For example, on a 64-bit Red Hat Linux 5 system, run:
    # cd agent/linux-x86_64
  2. Run the platform-specific installer. For example, run:
    # rpm –-upgrade qpm-agent*.rpm
