Host services compatibility

A new installation of, or upgrade to, version 5.9.2 of the Management Server does not automatically create HostServices for every discovered host. If you want that functionality, install and enable the Service Compatibility Cartridge (<foglight_home>/compat/cartridge/

If you have already installed and enabled the Service Compatibility Cartridge through a previous upgrade to or after a fresh installation of version 5.5.2, 5.5.4, 5.5.5, or 5.5.8, then the cartridge continues to be active after an upgrade to version 5.9.2, and this manual step is not necessary.

Start the embedded Agent Manager

The Management Server version 5.9.2 includes an embedded Agent Manager version 5.9.1. After installing the new Management Server 5.9.2, the embedded Agent Manager starts up by default.

Upgrade a Management Server in a federated environment

The procedure for upgrading a Federation Master and Federated Child(ren) is the same as described in Upgrade the Management Server. There are a few items in particular that should be noted when working in a Federated environment.

Federation compatibility

A version 5.9.x Federation Master requires that all Federated Children be upgraded to version 5.9.x as well.
