Active Administrator 8.5 - Release Notes

Active Administrator module requirements

For all Active Administrator® modules to operate properly, the Active Administrator Foundation service (AFS) requires an account that is a member of the Domain Admins group. However, you may want to customize access to each module for console users or the AFS account. See the Quest® Active Administrator® 8.5 Install Guide for the specific permissions required for operation of each module and submodule.

Upgrade and compatibility

Note the following when upgrading Active Administrator.

Active Administrator® 8.5 only supports in-place upgrades from Active Administrator versions 8.3 or 8.4. Upgrades from previous editions are not supported. To perform an in-place upgrade to Active Administrator 8.5 from a version of Active Administrator that is earlier than 8.3, you must first upgrade to Active Administrator 8.3.

Product licensing

You need either a trial or full license to use Active Administrator®. If you have questions about your license, contact your sales representative.

The Certificate Management and Active Directory Health features each require a separate license. If you do not have a license file to apply, the module does not appear in Active Administrator. You will see the Certificate Management feature listed under the Configuration module, but when you select the feature, a warning displays that a license is required.

You apply the license the first time you launch the AA Configuration Wizard following the installation of the server component. You must have your license available prior to beginning the install process.

Locate the license file(s). A license file is approximately 1 KB in size and has a .dlv file extension. Once applied, the License Status should indicate Installed or Trial depending on the type of license.
Click OK to continue with the configuration wizard.
From the Start menu, open AA Server Manager.

Upgrade and installation instructions

For detailed instructions, see the Quest® Active Administrator® Install Guide and the Quest® Active Administrator® User Guide.
