Update the Java Runtime Environment

Both the Management Server and the Agent Manager require a Java® Runtime Environment. Quest Software Inc. tests and bundles each Foglight release with versions of the JRE that are compatible with the Management Server and the Agent Manager. Quest audits the security bulletins from Oracle® that are related to those versions of the JRE. If Quest determines that any of the bulletins are applicable to the Management Server or Agent Manager code, Quest releases a security update with the necessary fixes incorporated.

Quest recommends that you use the JRE versions bundled with the Foglight release, because Quest cannot guarantee that other versions of the JRE will perform correctly. However, Quest recognizes that you may have particularly stringent security requirements that require you to use a different version of the JRE.

If you must upgrade a version of the JRE, Quest will make the effort, in good faith, to support the upgrade, as long as it meets the following guidelines:

b
In the jre subdirectory of your Agent Manager installation directory, create a new directory named for the version number of the JRE to which you want to upgrade, with components separated by periods (for example, 1.8.0.25).
b
Rename <foglight_home>/jre to <foglight_home>/jre.bak.
c
Create a new <foglight_home>/jre directory.
d
Unpack the new JRE into the new <foglight_home>/jre directory.

Upgrade the Foglight Management Server

This section provides information about the following topics:

Migrate to Windows SSO from VSJ SSO

If you were using the VSJ SSO implementation in earlier versions of Foglight, you must migrate to the new Windows OS-based SSO.

1
Make a backup of the vsj.properties file before you upgrade Foglight. You can find this file in the following location:
<foglight_home>/server/default/deploy-foglight/console.war/WEB-INF/vsj.properties
3
If there is no keytab file configured in the VSJ SSO, create the keytab file first using the ktpass command, as described in “Configure Active Directory to support Windows Single Sign-on” section in the Foglight online help.
4
Edit the krb5-auth.config file to set the properties described in the following table.

Principal

Keytab

5
Edit the krb5.config file. Set the realm name to the vsj.properties idm.realm value.
