When upgrading eDirectory, you can upgrade from eDirectory 8.8.8.x 64-bit to eDirectory 9.1 64-bit.
NOTE:To upgrade from a 32-bit version of eDirectory to a 64-bit version of eDirectory, first upgrade 32-bit version to eDirectory 8.8.x 64-bit version and then upgrade it to eDirectory 9.1. You can follow the same procedure for upgrading a 64-bit eDirectory to eDirectory 9.1.
The following sections provide information to help you upgrade your existing eDirectory installation to the current version.
You can upgrade your eDirectory server using the Windows installer. Perform the following steps to upgrade your eDirectory server:
At the Windows server, log in as Administrator or as a user with administrative privileges
Run eDirectory_910_Windows_x86_64.exe from the windows folder in the eDirectory 9.1 CD or from the downloaded file.
The installer screen will now display the existing eDirectory tree name and server FDN on thetab. Enter the tree admin credentials and click on the button to proceed with the upgrade process.
Upgrading eDirectory on Windows can be done in silent mode.
On Windows, before upgrading you need to mention the tree name, server name and admin credential of the existing eDirectory server in the upgrade.ni response file.
Below is a sample upgrade.ni response file shown with the upgrade configuration:
[NWI:NDS] mode=configure Tree Name=enewtree Server Name=enewserver Server Container=org Admin Context=org Admin Login Name=Admin Admin Password=env:PASSWORD_VAR Require IPV6=NO Require EBA=NO Require FIPS for TLS=YES LDAP TCP Port=389 LDAP SSL Port=636 Require TLS=Yes Require SS=Yes Existing Server=188.8.131.52 Existing Server Port=524 [NWI:SNMP] Stop service=No [NWI:NMAS] Methods=CertMutual,Challenge Response,DIGEST-MD5,NDS,Simple Password,SAML
Once the upgrade.ni response file is updated with the required eDirectory server details, run the following command to upgrade your eDirectory server:
<eDirectory installed location> ./EConfig.ps1 -rfile <Sample_Response_Files location>\upgrade.ni
For example, C:\NetIQ\eDirectory> ./EConfig.ps1 -rfile C:\Sample_Response_Files\upgrade.ni.
