    Hi,

     

    At my organization we are planning to upgrade Siteminder from 12.52 [Base] to 12.52 sp2. are there any specific things i need to be aware of ?

     

    Policy Server: Windows 2008 R2

    Policy Store : SQL Server 2008

    Policy Store backup: we have a schedule job that performs backup daily

    Infrastructure: All VM's 

    Roll Back: VM Snapshot Revert

     

    Implementation Steps:

     

    Upgrade an r12.52 Policy Server to 12.52 SP2.
    Stop Policy Server
    Disable XML Signature: set DisableXSWCheck=true
    Backup JVMOptions.txt

     

    Upgrade Policy Server by executing Binary
    policy store check box – check

     

    Validate Install log file

     

    Run XPSDDInstall SmMaster.xdd from PS_home\xps\dd
    XPSImport smpolicy.xml –npass from PS_home\db.
    Run XPSSweeper

     

    Upgrade the r12.52 Administrative UI to 12.52 SP2
    Stop AdminUI
    Run Pre Req
    Run Admin UI

     

    please advise

    Hi Manju,

     

    1. Unfortunately, R12.52SP2 does NOT support Win2k8r2 yet.

    The ONLY OS supported is Win2k12R2.

    Check PSM here : SAP Portal Services 

     

    2. 12.52SP2 Admin UI is based on JBoss 8 which is a big jump from prior version which was Jboss 5, so I would recommend doing a clean install of Admin UI

    As I said eralier, you do NOT have option to go with 12.52SP2 as your platform win2k8r2 is not supported.

     

    So, the only choice you have is going with 12.52sp1

    The schema (.xdd) hasn't chnaged but the default objects (smpolicy.xml) have some changes.

     

    But as per best practice you should always upgrade your policy store by importing the .xdd and default policy (smpolicy.xml) files

    Please check previous post I have provided PSM for both 12.52Sp2 as well as 12.52sp1

     

    Please open a support case if you have futher questions. It will be much easier to talk through this over the phone and get sorted out at one go.
