7.1 Considerations for Upgrade

Review the following considerations before beginning to upgrade the Identity Manager components:

  • You can upgrade the components only in the console mode. Silent upgrade is not supported.

  • You must upgrade one component at a time.

  • Identity Vault must be separately upgraded. This version supports eDirectory 9.1.

  • If Identity Vault is configured on BTRFS file system, the upgrade process will not succeed. This version supports only Ext3, Ext4, and XFS file systems.

  • Ensure that there are no events in the cache file before you begin upgrading Identity Manager Engine. If your driver is using MapDB, ensure that your upgraded driver works correctly with the upgraded Engine. For more information, see Working with MapDB 3.0.5.

  • You must review the recommended server setup before upgrading the components. Identity Manager 4.7 mandates that Identity Applications and OSP are installed on the same computer. However, Identity Reporting supports a locally or a remotely installed OSP. For more information, see Considerations for Installing in a Distributed Setup.
