Here are the steps for upgrading to Goverlan v8. Please read the documentation thoroughly and contact support if you have any questions.
Phase 1: Upgrading the Goverlan Central Server
- Download the latest GCS version www.goverlan.com/downloads/GoverlanCSv2x.exe
- On your GCS, backup the folder specified in Options –> Datafile Path
- Run the installer.
After the installation is complete, your v7 clients will begin polling in to the new GCS installation.
Phase 2: Preparing the Database Server (Optional for Remote Control only customers).
Goverlan v8 uses a database to store information about the workstations and the Goverlan configuration objects such as software packages etc…
Goverlan can use an existing database server or you can install SQL Express on any server.
Please read these articles about SQL Server configuration before you begin.
- Open the Goverlan v8 Console
- Go to Settings –> Database Settings
- Enter the SQL Server database information
- Restart the Goverlan console.
- Configure the database settings as a GCS policy for all other Goverlan consoles
Phase 3: Upgrading your Goverlan v7 Consoles to Goverlan v8.
- Download the latest Goverlan version www.goverlan.com/downloads/GoverLANv8_Setup.exe (Suite) www.goverlan.com/downloads/GoverLANRCv8_Setup.exe (RC Standalone).
- Install Goverlan on your workstations
- If v7 is detected on that workstation, v8 will display a migration wizard.
- Follow the wizard to migrate Goverlan objects to v8.
Phase 4: Upgrading Goverlan v7 agents to Goverlan v8 agents
This can be done with a Goverlan Scope Action (Suite Only).
If you are using Remote Control Only, use the v7 Add\Remove Agent feature to remove v7 agents. Then use the Goverlan Agent manager in v8 to install the v8 agents.
The Goverlan v8 Agents operate on a different TCP port. They use 21158. You may need to allow the Goverlan agent through the local firewalls or endpoint protection software.
The sharing of objects has changed.
