Upgrading from 4.0.1 Advanced to 4.0.2 Standard


Has anyone ever done an upgrade or migration from Advanced to Standard
edition? I am going to be moving a driver set from servers running IDM
4.0.1 Advanced version to 4.0.2 Standard. My plan is to maintain the
the driver associations. The process should be to remove the current
activations from the driver set, add the standard servers, and migrate
the drivers one at a time. Once the drivers are migrated over, I will
remove the Advanced 4.0.1 servers, and then add the new activations.
Does anyone see any potential issues, or have any advice on the
migration? I appreciate any help.

I have not done it, but that sounds like a fine way to do it assuming you
do not want to just upgrade the existing servers. There was a problem
going from AE to SE when the concept was first introduced because of some
poor overloading of a pseudo-server attribute, but that should be resolved
by now, and where you are changing from one server to another it really
should not matter with the order you have specified.

I can advice to use another plan.
I can't see reason to play with associations, you can go another (pretty
well documented after IDM4 release) route.
IDM4.02 documentation: http://tinyurl.com/nzmcyps
IDM4.5 documentation: http://tinyurl.com/p5denyg

IDM4.5 documentation provide more details in one place.

Very high level steps:
1. Add new server to same Driver Set
2. Copying Server-Specific Information for the Driver Set to "new"
server.
3. Decommission the old server

Success!
I removed the Advanced Engine Activation
Added the new Standard 4.0.2 servers to the driverset
Copied the drivers to the new servers, and configured them to run on the
new servers
Removed the old servers from the driverset
Added Activation for the Standard Edition

As a heads up, realize that the way the license audit tool is not well
explained.

Do an LDAP query from the base of your tree for the filter:
(objectClass=nrfIdentity)

All those objects can be potentially counted in an audit as Advanced
users, possibly regardless of what license you claim is in the tree.

Even if you had removed all the nrfResource, nrfMemberOf, nrf* and
srvprv* attributes from your objects, the presence of the object class
can trigger the charging of a RBPM license, which in these days is an
Advanced user license.
