Upgrading from Enterprise Vault 2007: Running the Configuration wizard

If you are upgrading from Enterprise Vault 2007 you must run the Configuration wizard, as described in this section. If you are upgrading from any version of Enterprise Vault 8.0 you do not need to run the Configuration wizard.

Before you run the Configuration wizard, you must already have completed the following:

To run the Configuration wizard

  1. Start the Admin service. Also start the Admin service on all servers in other Enterprise Vault Sites that share the same Directory database.

    Note:

    Do not continue until all the Admin services have started.

  2. Log on as the Vault Service account.

  3. Ensure that the Directory service is running.

  4. Click Start > Programs > Enterprise Vault > Enterprise Vault Configuration to start the Configuration wizard.

  5. The only available option on the first screen of the Configuration wizard is Upgrade this configuration. Click Next.

  6. On the next screen, click Next to start the upgrade. There is a prompt for the Vault Service account password.

  7. Enter the Vault Service account password and click OK. The Configuration wizard shows a progress bar while it configures the system. Depending on the existing configuration, the wizard may omit some configuration steps. The wizard does the following, as necessary:

    • Creates a log file for the upgrade in the Enterprise Vault Reports folder. The log file name is UpgradeEVServerToV8.0 date.log, where date is the date and time when the file was created.

    • Creates a Task Controller service on any Enterprise Vault server that does not already have a Task Controller service.

    • Re-encrypts the password values in the Directory database entries, if necessary, using the new Directory encryption services.

    • Updates the Roles-based Administration database with new roles, tasks and operations, and creates a log file in the Enterprise Vault Reports folder. The log file name is _EvAzUtil date.log, where date is the date and time when the file was created.

    • If necessary, creates the Enterprise Vault Operations Manager database.

    • Checks the Vault Service account permissions on all servers.

    • Updates the Enterprise Vault DCOM settings on all servers in the Enterprise Vault environment.

  8. Click Finish to close the Configuration wizard.

  9. Stop all Enterprise Vault services.

  10. Start the Enterprise Vault Admin service and the Directory service.

  11. If you stopped the IIS Admin service before the installation, start any services that were stopped by this service.
