Upgrading From Earlier Versions

Before upgrading a running copy of PKI Services Manager, review the upgrade procedure for your operating system.

To upgrade on Windows

  1. You can install over your existing copy of PKI Services Manager.

    Note: If the PKI Services Manager service is running when you start the installation, the installer stops the service. Certificate validation services are not available while the service is stopped.

  2. Start the service after the installation is complete.

After the upgrade, PKI Services Manager uses your previously existing configuration. Your certificate store, revocation settings, identity mappings, and all other settings continue to work as they did prior to the upgrade.

To upgrade on UNIX

  1. Uninstall your existing copy of PKI Services Manager.

    The uninstall script renames your existing configuration directory (/opt/attachmate/pkid/config/ by default) using a name based on the current date, and time. For example, config.20110101143755. Your local-store directory and any certificates you have added to this directory remain unchanged.

  2. Install the upgrade.

    The installer automatically starts the service. At this point, the service is running with a default configuration and a newly installed key pair. The next steps describe how to restore your prior settings and key pair using the backup configuration directory.

  3. To restore your prior identification key, configuration settings, and mappings, you should stop the service. You can then replace the new default config directory with the backup copy and restart the service. For example:

    /etc/init.d/pkid stop

    cd /opt/attachmate/pkid

    mv config config_default

    mv config.20110101143755 config

    /etc/init.d/pkid start
