when i try to upgrade my PIM 12.9 (running on RHL 6.5 ) into PIM 12.9 sp1 on same machine ,, after installing JDK 1.8 and exporting the new path of java, i ran the install_EntM.bin -i console (while all the PIM 12.9.0 running and jboss running too)
i have received the following message:
This setup installs CA Privileged Identity Manager Enterprise Server version
220.127.116.112. However, a newer version, 18.104.22.1680, is already installed, and
cannot be downgraded. Setup will now quit.
i repeat this again but with running the pimctl.sh stop command, so all the PIM services and JBoss service stopped, same error message appears.
how is that ? and how to correct this , it appear that the installer script identify PIM 22.214.171.1240 to be higher than the new PIM 126.96.36.1995 ?
any idea what is going on ? and how to correct this ?
I think this could be due to the fact we do not support an inplace upgrade of Enterprise Manager. You must do a migration upgrade.
How to Migrate an Enterprise Management Server Deployment
I will test and verify with our team that is this the case.
Principal Support Engineer, CA Privileged Identity Manager
that is killer that it does not support inline upgrade ,,, although it was mentioned to be possible in the article upgrade ENTM (but it was removed after reporting couple missing parts ).
please AaronArmagost confirm on this
have you tested this case ? and inline upgrade from PIM12.9 into 12.9 sp1
Inline upgrade from R12.9 to R12.9SP1 is not supported, only a migration is possible.
I did verify this by looking at the Product Documentation available at the Wiki.ca.com site
Upgrading - CA Privileged Identity Manager - 12.9.01 - CA Technologies Documentation
Under this section, look at
This should give you a fair idea that we do not support an inplace upgrade from R12.9 to R12.9 SP1
Do let us know if this does help.
Also with respect to the message that you have shared, we would be working on this to make sure we have a proper message being displayed.
Thanks Reatesh for your reply
I think the wrong article about the upgrade instructions make the confusion with me ,it was removed once i have reported the missing links in it.
but don't you think it is hard to implement and hurt in the business wise , that CA PIM 12.9 sp1 cannot be in-place upgrade , while it is just service pack, not major version !!
i already did the migrating process when moving from version 12.8 into 12.9, and it wasn't any easy task!! , but for the new feature (the proxy ssh and RDP) it worth the migration hard process ,, but now ..!
i hope the development teams take that in consideration in the new releases of the product.
thanks for your reply
have a nice day
