The process for upgrading Management Console for Unix from an older version is similar to installing it for the first time. The installer detects an older version of the console and automatically upgrades the components.
Note: The procedures in this topic assume you have Management Console for Unix 2.0.x or greater installed.
Before you begin the upgrade procedure, close the console and make a backup of your database, as explained in step 1.
To upgrade Management Console for Unix
Management Console for Unix uses a HSQLDB (Hyper Structured Query Language Database) to store its data such as information about the hosts, settings, users, groups, and so forth.
Refer to Database Maintenance in the online Help for more information about the database locations and filenames.
Once you backup the database files, you are ready to start the upgrade.
When the installer detects a previous version of the mangement console is already installed, it asks if you want to continue.
The installation wizard uninstalls the old version and configures the server database and service.
Note: After an upgrade from any version of Management Console for Unix, it is important to re-profile all managed hosts.
One Identity recommends that you upgrade your Windows components before you upgrade the Unix components.
The process for upgrading the Authentication Services Windows components from older versions to version 4.1 is similar to the initial installation process. The Authentication Services Windows installer detects older versions and automatically upgrades them. The next time you launch Active Directory Users and Computers, you will see the updated Authentication Services property tabs.
Note: Have your license available for the Setup wizard.
You must install Authentication Services on all Windows Workstations you will use to administer Unix data in Active Directory.
To upgrade the Windows components
The Authentication Services Setup Wizard starts automatically.
The wizard leads you through the following dialogs:
If you leave the Launch Authentication Services option selected on the InstallShield Wizard Complete dialog, when you click Finish, it detects if you have not configured Authentication Services for Active Directory and starts the Authentication Services Active Directory Configuration Wizard automatically. (Proceed to Configure Active Directory for Authentication Services .)
If you had a previous version of the One Identity Identity Manager for Unix web console, upgrade to the Management Console for Unix mangement console to take advantage of the new features.
To upgrade the Authentication Services 4.x Windows components
The InstallShield Wizard Welcome dialog indicates that a previous installation was found.
The Setup Status dialog shows the progress of the upgrade:
