Active Administrator 8.6.2 - Release Notes

Upgrade and compatibility

Note the following when upgrading Active Administrator.

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.


Backing up your data

Prior to upgrading Active Administrator ensure you back up the Active Administrator share, any data files, ActiveAdministratror.xml, and export the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Quest\Active Administrator registry key.

The Active Administrator share is located at the root on the computer where Active Administrator is installed (C:\ActiveAdministrator). The Active Administrator share contains several folders that contain information, such as settings, templates, repositories, backup files, and log files. Back up the entire Active Administrator share.
The registry key is located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Quest\Active Administrator.
