Safeguard Authentication Services 6.0 LTS - Upgrade Guide

Privileged Access Suite for UNIX Introducing One Identity Safeguard Authentication Services Upgrade Windows components Configure Active Directory Configure UNIX agent components Upgrade client components manually Getting started with Safeguard Authentication Services Troubleshooting

Configure UNIX agent components

The Control Center gives you access to the tools you need to perform UNIX identity management tasks.

NOTE: If the Control Center is not currently open, you can either double-click the desktop icon or access it by means of the Start menu.

Follow the steps outlined on the Control Center Home page to get your UNIX agents ready.

Upgrade client components manually

You can upgrade your Safeguard Authentication Services client components from the UNIX command line.

About the Application Configuration

The first time you install or upgrade the Safeguard Authentication Services Windows components in your environment, One Identity recommends that you configure Active Directory for Safeguard Authentication Services to utilize full functionality. This is a one-time Active Directory configuration step that creates the Safeguard Authentication Services application configuration in your forest. Safeguard Authentication Services uses the information found in the application configuration to maintain consistency across the enterprise.

NOTE: You need only one application configuration per forest. If you already have a Safeguard Authentication Services application configuration in your forest, you do not need to create another one. For more information, see For more information, see About Active Directory configuration..

Additional configuration information

NOTE: During the upgrade, vasd reloads and updates its user and group cache. To restart the Safeguard Authentication Services caching service, see Restarting services.

NOTE: Oracle Solaris: The -a vasclient-defaults option specifies an alternative default file for pkgadd administrative options that allows pkgadd to overwrite an existing package with a new package.

pkgadd does not support the concept of upgrading a package, so this allows you to upgrade without having to rejoin your machine to the Active Directory domain, or uninstalling the old version first.

NOTE: HP-UX: Reboot the HP-UX machine to ensure that all of the new files are installed. HP-UX does not allow you to overwrite files that are in use—this is done as part of the boot sequence.
