    Question:

     


    We're planning to upgrade our SOA environment 12.1SP2 to 12.8 and we'd
    like to know if the SOA Agent 12.1SP2 will work with the Policy Server
    12.8 ?

     

    Answer:

     


    At first glance, this SOA Agent 12.1SP2 will be still supported with
    your Policy Server 12.8, but we strongly recommend you to upgrade the
    SOA Agents to the lastest version 12.52SP1CR09, referencing the EOS
    document :

    CA SOA Security Manager r12.1 (includes all Service Packs and
    Cumulative Releases) End of Service Announcement

    "While this particular End of Service does not cover these
    components, no new certifications for r12.1 (including all Service
    Packs and Cumulative Releases) for these components will be executed
    after December 31, 2016.

    CA SOA Security Manager Agent for Web Servers CA SOA Security Manager
    Agent for Application Servers Upgrade Paths At this time we encourage
    you to plan for your migration. The recommended no-charge software
    upgrade option for customers running CA SOA Security Manager 12.1
    should upgrade to either CA Web Services Security Manager 12.51 or the
    more recent 12.52 release."

    Note that you'll need to upgrade the SOA Policy Server 12.0SP2 to 12.8
    in 2 phases :

    1. Upgrade from 12.0SP2 to 12.52SP1;
    2. Upgrate from 12.52SP1 to 12.8;

    Ref.:

    Parallel Upgrade

    You can complete a parallel upgrade from Release 12.5x or later to
    Release 12.8. For information about the components that are available
    for upgrade, see Complete the Upgrade Prerequisites.
