Binary Tree Directory Sync Pro for Notes 20.11 - Requirements and Installation Guide

7.1 Supported Upgrade Path

Directory Sync Pro can be upgraded to a new version without uninstalling the existing version. The install wizard will detect the necessary changes and manage the upgrade.

Upgrades are supported to the latest GA (Generally Available Release) from two GA versions prior. GA releases are listed on our website. If you are upgrading to a CSR (Customer Specific Release), please contact Binary Tree Support for clarification on whether the upgrade is supported.

If upgrading from a release older than two releases prior to the current GA, it is highly recommended that Binary Tree Support is contacted to discuss upgrade options for your specific environment. Some implementations which are more complex or have custom configurations may require a dedicated resource to assist in the upgrade process. If the upgrade goes beyond the scope of product support, this issue will be escalated to our Professional Services to assist at a billable rate.

Please contact Quest Support if you have questions or need clarification on the Directory Synchronization upgrade process.

7.2 Upgrade Process

Directory Sync Pro can be upgraded to a new version without uninstalling the existing version. The installation wizard will detect the necessary changes and manage the upgrade.

The PowerShell commands that are installed and stored in the SQL database should not be modified as they may be lost during an upgrade.

Careful consideration should be taken when:

  • Upgrading in a production environment

  • Upgrading an older release of Directory Sync Pro to the latest release

Recommendations:

  • Truncating the log or reducing the log size as much as possible before upgrading is recommended. This will reduce the amount of time needed to rebuild the log table index during the upgrade process.

  • The examination of the Log SQL database during an upgrade may take longer than expected. Please allow the process to complete and the upgrade installation to proceed.

  1. Download the install executable file of the new version from the FTP site and save it on the server.

  2. Run the executable file. The install wizard will appear and proceed through the standard installation steps.
