upgrades were not part of the first validation build, but we are working on them now and it will be supported at GA. The only limitation is for Windows installations that were placed in the Program Files (x86) directory path will have to be uninstalled and installed fresh, since the 32-bit to 64-bit architecture change cannot support a direct upgrade in that configuration. I hope that answers the question.
i notice in place upgrades are not currently available, will they become available?
it may impact the speed at which we upgrade and my employer sees benefits both ways
We are working on OpenID.connect and I would encourage you to register for the 12.6 validation project where we will be discussing this feature. I'll be happy to connect directly as well to learn more about your concerns so please look for an email from me.
Please include Openid Connect AZ server functionality atleast in any of the 12.6 CR releases. Lack of this functionality is causing us to look at Ca's competitors like Ping and which inturn might entirely replace our access management suite. Ca's competitors including Open source Access management products are releasing industry standards quickly in their products in comparison. Our management is no longer seeing value in Ca SSO product and is giving us an example of large private bank in USA who are replacing Ca SSO with Ping product.
Thanks for sharing this great opportunity with the Security Community, Apoorva!
