Can VAPP 14.4 DB configuration point to existing 14.3 Database ?

  • 1.  Can VAPP 14.4 DB configuration point to existing 14.3 Database ?

    Posted 06-16-2021 10:08 PM

    Hi Team,

    We have existing a VAPP 14.3 CP2 which is pointing to a MSSQL DB-IAMDB(data stored is based on 14.3 CP2).

    We will deploy a new VAPP with 14.4 OVA, when we configure VAPP, can we point to an existing MSSQL DB-IAMDB (which is 14.3) ? 

    Will this upgrade the DB from 14.3 to 14.4 ? 

     

    regards,

    William

    Yes. 14.4 VApp will upgrade the DB.
    Take a snapshot/backup of the existing DB or use a copy of the db for 14.4 installation.

    You should be able to, provided you make sure that the userstore & provisioningstore passwords are the same in both the 14.3 and 14.4 environments. If you are using FIPS, then both the environments should have the same key.

    Once the userstore, provstore import is done, you should also run the command registerJavaConnectors to reimport the connector data in the provisioningstore.

    $> sudo registerJavaConnectors

    Ok, will run register JavaConnectors.

    Let's my 14.3 env, only have 1 node(with userstore, provstore).
    But my new 14.4 env have 3 nodes, then when i restore data from 14.3 userstore & provstore to 14.4 with 3 nodes, will it have issue ?

    Once you import the data into one node, it should replicated into the other directory nodes.

    Hi Shesh,
    Let me rephase my question about 14.3 DB.

    Let said we have deployed & configured with a VAPP 14.4 which is using a new DB.(Deployed with 1 node).
    Then we want the this new VAPP 14.4 node to be reconfigure to point another DB (existing 14.3 DB), can this done ?

    The reason why we want to use back existing DB (14.3) is bcos customer want to maintain back their DB data, audit log, provrole, request, workflow items. Once we use this new node 14.4 VAPP, customer can still login make new request, perform approval on existing pending workflow items, check/view VST with existing data.

    We know that there are 2 ways of migration. But these migration method does not work with our env. That's why we explore different of upgrade to 14.4.

    regards,
    William

    When you point an existing 14.4 vapp to a 14.3 DB,

    1) IP and IM will reconfigure during restart.
    2) IG db upgrade only happens during vapp install or upgrade, so you will have to upgrade the IG db separately.

    Note: Take a back up of 14.3 DB before you point the 14.4. vapp to it.

    Hi Shesh,
    For item 1- ok
    For item 2-IG, meaning that we need to run populateIgdatabases in order to upgrade the IG DB tables, right ?

    Yes. populateIGDatabases is the command.
