Upgrade from 2018.05 Operations Connector to 2019.05
I checked the MF documents ,there is no steps given for upgrading the Operations Connector 2018.05 to 2019.05 ,Please let me know if any one have performed the Upgrade from 2018.05 to 2019.05.
The reason for upgrade is that OBM 2020.05 supports only 2019.05 Operations Connector ,Hence planning to upgrade the same.
I upgrade a few BSMC already, but different versions.
so my steps was:
1) do a snapshot
2) install BSMC above the old one.
3) start BSMC and pray.
4) check if integration package still work.
worked all the time. but no guarantee given!
BSMC is just an OA Agent with additional features that runs an integration package. There may be dependencies of the integration package to the BSMC Version. But usually as the integration package just also uses normal policies of the Agent to schedule, create events, do topologie discovery, its usually runs on higher OA Agent version as well.
The next step is to upgrade the integration package on the BSMC, this can be more tricky.
