Myself being new to PAM, I am going through lots of configurations and have been documenting them for my reference but I thought I'd share it here too.
I wanted to capture all the steps required when you are on 2.8.x and want to migrate and upgrade to 3.1.1
So this article is actually 3 parts.
1. Upgrade PAM 2.8.x to 18.104.22.168
2. Migrate PAM 22.214.171.124 to 3.0.0
3. Upgrade PAM 3.0.0 to 3.0.1 3.0.2 3.0.3 and 3.1.1 (Now that 3.0.3 is available, that would be the upgrade path)
Between Step 2 and 3, you get to add a 2nd HDD for the migration and also discard it after completing the upgrade.
Here are the links to the articles.
Upgrade PAM 2.8.3/2.8.4 to 126.96.36.199
PAM Upgrade from 188.8.131.52 to 3.0.0
PAM Upgrade from 3.0.0 to 3.0.2 and 3.1.1
I hope you find it useful.
And thanks to hansh07 who shared the steps in his article.
Revision1: Upgrade will be going from 3.0.0 to 3.0.2 instead of 3.0.1, to avoid known issues.
Revision2: Authentication error after upgrading to PAM 3.x ve - CA Knowledge
Correction to step 3: Please use patch 3.0.2 instead of 3.0.1: 3.0.0 -> 3.0.2 -> 3.1.1. This will avoid a potential problem with LDAP user logon after the upgrade when 3.0.1 is used instead of 3.0.2.
Good point. I will update.
If we are going to upgrade from 2.8.3 to 184.108.40.206, then is that necessary to include all the hot fixes of 2.8.3 as part of the upgrade path?
To frame this question in another way - if we move from 2.8.3 to 220.127.116.11, then all the hot fixes of 2.8.3 will be included in that as a cumulative release?
Hi Lakshman, This would be true for 2.8.3 hotfixes published prior to release of 18.104.22.168. There are hotfixes on top of 2.8.3 that were published later and that are not included in 22.214.171.124. I would not recommend to apply those recent hotfixes to 2.8.3 before upgrading to 126.96.36.199. If you are at 2.8.3 still, you should consider migrating to 3.X at this time. 2.8 is nearing its end of support, see https://support.ca.com/phpdocs/7/9526/9526-PAM-fix-strategy.pdf
Great Job!!! Thanks!
Helpful. Thank you!
