These Release Notes cover the resolved issues, known issues, workarounds, and other important information about the 5.9.4 release of Foglight. Review all sections before starting the installation
The Foglight Management Server (FMS) code line for 5.9.x introduced a number of security related changes. More specifically, legacy JBoss components involved in data submission, Foglight High Availability and Foglight Federation configurations have been removed. As a result, customer upgrading from any Foglight version prior to 5.9.1 will have special considerations. Highlights of the upgrade process are noted below, but you are strongly encouraged carefully read the release notes and upgrade guides, and to contact support with any questions.
If you are running any version prior to 5.9.1, please be advised that:
• Once on FMS 126.96.36.199 version, you must upgrade all cartridges to 5.9.x compatible versions. The release notes and upgrade guides indicate cartridge version requirements, and the installer will check your cartridge versions and prevent you from upgrading if there are any incompatibilities.
NOTE: If required, you can obtain the Cartridge Builder cartridge from KB 234169
If you have concerns and would like to evaluate your cartridge and/or custom agent compatibility prior to upgrade, we have developed a pre-upgrade analysis utility to identify cartridges that need to be upgraded and custom cartridges that might need modified.
