Upgrading from a Previous Version
When you upgrade your Open Manage Network Manager installation from a previous version, keep the following in mind:
Operating System Upgrade
If your operating system is not supported in the upgrade version, upgrade to a supported operating system before upgrading Open Manage Network Manager. The way to do this is to do the following:
• Back up the database.
• Upgrade the operating system.
• Install the original Open Manage Network Manager on the new operating system.
• Restore the database.
• Proceed with the installation / upgrade of Open Manage Network Manager.
See Database Backup and Restoring Databases for details.
• Make sure you log out of the operating system between installations.
• Upgrading requires a new license to activate new features.
• Close any open browsers when upgrading.
• The following require manual migration (export, then import) from previous versions: SMTP settings, some scheduled items. Some schedules may require deletion / re-making. If you open them and they are blank, use this method.
• You must re-create topologies as Visualizations. (suggestion: take a screenshot)
• Group Operations have been deprecated, replaced by Adaptive CLI.
• The default password policy puts no restrictions on password length.
• Adaptive CLI with Perl scripts must contain valid Perl under the “strict” pragma (use strict;). If you import or migrate from a previous version a Perl script that does not pass this “strict” criterion, you must rewrite it for “strict” compliance before it can be successfully edited or copied.
• Any configured color changes to the portal may not persist and must be re-made manually. Similarly, customized page layouts or page order may not persist and you must typically re-arrange them manually.
Handling Missing Users
If you have upgraded your Open Manage Network Manager installation, users and/or their role associations may not appear. You can fix this by going to one of the following screens:
Roles > Administrator > Actions > Assign members.
Roles > Power users > Actions > Assign members.
Roles > [ROLENAME] > Actions > Assign members.
Then click Update associations.
