Upgrade UIM and All Associated Components
To successfully upgrade UIM and all associated components, complete the steps that are explained in the following articles.
  • For more information about the UIM 20.3.3 release, see the UIM 20.3.3 article.
  • UIM 20.3.3 has removed dependency on CA Business Intelligence (CABI) for rendering the native OC screens: Home page, Group view page, Device view page, and Monitoring Technologies (probes) view page. Custom and Out-of-the-Box dashboards and reports are still rendered by using CABI; that is, they have a dependency on CABI. However, the native OC screens are no longer dependent on CABI (Jaspersoft) and are rendered by using HTML5. For more information about the native OC screens using HTML5, see the Configuring and Viewing Monitoring Data article or the "Removing CABI Dependency (Native Operator Console)" section in the UIM 20.3.3 article.
  • UIM 20.3.1 is a patch release. The UIM 20.3.1 patch does not include any upgrade installer for the UIM Server. The patch includes separate standalone artifacts that you can use to upgrade the respective components. For more information about the artifacts that are available as a part of the UIM 20.3.1 patch release, see the UIM 20.3.1 article
  • If you are upgrading from UIM 9.0.2/9.2.0 to UIM 20.3.0 and want to use the secure hub and robot option that is available in the UIM 20.3.0 server upgrade installer, we recommend that you first upgrade UMP to OC and CABI before you start the secure hub and robot upgrade process.
  • UIM uses OpenJDK instead of Oracle JDK. For more information about the OpenJDK usage in UIM, see Adopting OpenJDK.
I do not want to upgrade because I have multiple hub tiers and thousands of probes
In this situation, we recommend a phased upgrade approach. First, upgrade your primary hub and failover hubs, if deployed, the Unified Management Portal (UMP) to Operator Console (OC). You can schedule the upgrade of secondary hubs, and then gradually upgrade your robots and probes based on your business needs.
