You cannot upgrade from Advanced Authentication 5.6 to 6.0. However, you can export the configurations of the database from Advanced Authentication 5.6 to 6.0. After you install Advanced Authentication 6.0, you can import all the configurations from 5.6.
For example, to upgrade from Advanced Authentication 5.5 to 6.0, you must first upgrade from Advanced Authentication 5.5 to 5.6. Then, you must install 6.0 and import the configurations from 5.6.
To migrate 5.6 to Advanced Authentication 6.0, perform the following steps:
Deploy the Advanced Authentication Global Master 6.0 server. For more information, see Configuring the Global Master server.
Migrate the database.
To do this, you must export the database in 5.6 and import the database in 6.0.
NOTE: By default, for the existing customers, the first 6.0 server where the database is imported will be the new Global Master server (GMS) of the cluster.
Deploy other Advanced Authentication servers in the cluster.
Reconfigure the third-party integrations to point them to the new server address.
For example, Advanced Authentication integrates with ADFS through the SAML or OAuth event. After you migrate Advanced Authentication from 5.6 to 6.0, you must point all these third-party integrations to the new 6.0 server.
Create theDNS service location records for the new servers of the 6.0 cluster.
Upgrade the client packages on the endpoints.
It is recommended to upgrade a couple of Clients and perform the testing for a couple of days. Then upgrade the next portion of Clients and perform the testing for few more days. After this upgrade the rest of the Clients.
Do not delete theservice location records from DNS for the servers available in the 5.6 cluster unless all the endpoints are migrated Advanced Authentication to 6.0.
