Damn it! I spent hours downloading the 9.5 installer and guides just a few days ago in preparation of upgrade from 9.1.1. Luke, what admin roles get messed up after the upgrade? I did customize a few of the default roles. Would the changes not carried over after the upgrade?
Cody: Not technically necessary to step through, but I did anyways. Tom: I have some custom roles that lost some options. Custom roles always seem to get busted along the way. Best to document them prior to your upgrade. I was going to go to 9.5 and 9.6 appeared on Friday 🙂
For DB, I still only need to perform incremental upgrade from 9.1 to 9.2 to 9.3. Then I can jump directly to 9.5 with the 9.6 installer. Correct? Will I need to download SEG v2 installer from the website? Or should I download from my console once it’s upgraded to 9.6?
Yes, you'll have to step through till your DB is at 9.3 then you can use the 9.6 DB installer after that. The SEG has a link to the installer in the console, it will direct to this site to download. They are no longer including installers in the console etc. Your biggest change will be reporting. The last SSRS install was for 9.2 and still works but there are no updates for it.
Thanks Luke. I already downloaded the SEG installers from VMware. Did you experience any issue with upgrading SEG from classic to v2? I understand only v2 is available starting with version 9.5 anyway. Reporting has been integrated with the current version so separate SSRS is no longer needed, correct? If so, I'm totally ok with that as it's one less server to manage.
I still use the SSRS reporting because the intelligence portal kinda stinks IMO. I haven't switched to V2 yet, separate change for me. Need to plan that a bit more, or even if I need it since I've mainly migrated to Office365 by now and am not using SEG's there.
No, it's not a requirement to use V2 yet. V1 is going to EOL soon. Best to get over to it sooner than later, the speed increase is a great benefit. V2 uses the REST API vs the SOAP API of V1. SOAP is much slower than REST.
The Classic Secure Email Gateway (SEG) installer will reach End of General Support on May 5, 2019. On December 24, 2018, the Classic SEG installer will be removed from the Resources portal. After May 5, 2019, VMware cannot guarantee full support for Classic SEG.
Can't confirm anything, we're just a bunch of admins! 😉 But really, Notes always takes a back seat. I bet they will support it in V2 before long. V2 is still quite young. If you need a real answer, open a ticket.
Thanks for your quick response, I'm hoping that v2 supports Lotus Notes soon enough, we are facing a situation where we have a Lotus Environment. I've also posted a scenario we're facing, if anybody can help me with it, it's posted here https://support.workspaceone.com/posts/360015945294
