Upgrade CA EEM

Before you start, review the Release Notes and System Requirements for upgrading CA EEM from an earlier version to the current version.
Install the 32-bit libuuid package before running 32-bit CA EEM r12.5 on RHEL x64.
When you are upgrading CA EEM, ensure that the operating system on which you want to upgrade, is supported by CA EEM.
Before you upgrade from an earlier release to the current release, perform the following steps:
  • Back up CA EEM server data, configuration files, CA Directory and iTechnology folders.
  • If you are upgrading from Release 8.4 and have configured a failover setup, verify that you have performed the following tasks in the CA Directory knowledge file:
    • Set all the failover servers to use the same DSA password (dsa-password). If the CA Directory knowledge file does not contain a dsa-password, add a password.
    • Set auth-levels to anonymous, clear-password.
Example: Sample CA Directory Knowledge File
# eiam repository # set dsa "iTechPoz-hostname" = { prefix = <cn iTechPoz> dsa-name = <cn iTechPoz><cn PozDsa><cn "hostname"> dsa-password = newpassword address = tcp "hostname" port 509 auth-levels = anonymous, clear-password dsp-idle-time = 120 dsa-flags = multi-write link-flags = ssl-encryption-remote };
For more information about how to back up your CA EEM data and configuration files, see Back up and Restore CA EEM Data.
Perform the following tasks to upgrade a Standard EEM Server. You can also migrate CA EEM from an unsupported Operating system.
