Upgrade Privilege Manager for Sudo

Privilege Manager for Sudo supports a direct upgrade installation from version 2.0. The Privilege Manager software in this release is provided using platform-specific installation packages.

If you are currently running Privilege Manager for Unix 2.0, it may be possible to perform a direct upgrade installation depending on the package management software on your platform (Note: Direct upgrade installations are not possible with Solaris.pkg packages). If you perform a direct upgrade installation, your previous configuration details are retained. Where a direct upgrade is not possible, you must first remove the previously installed package, and install and configure Privilege Manager as a new product installation.

Before you upgrade

Because the Privilege Manager for Sudo 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.

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 PM Agent, see the One Identity Privilege Manager for Unix 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
