Identity Director Upgrade Guide


Upgrade procedure

To upgrade, run the Ivanti Identity Director Installer on the target device and select the component that you want to upgrade. The installation wizard of the component guides you through the upgrade process. You don't need to uninstall previous installations first.

The upgrade procedure consists of the following steps:

  1. Stop all Transaction Engines and Catalog Services
  2. Upgrade all Setup and Sync Tools
  3. Upgrade all other components:
  4. Upgrade the Catalog Services (optional; see the linked topic for important information)
  5. Upgrade the Mobile Client (optional). See the Identity Director Help for a user manual of the Mobile Client.

Unattended upgrades

You can also upgrade the components of Identity Director unattended, for example in a command line or as part of an Ivanti Automation Task Perform Unattended Installation. Please note that the unattended upgrade takes the existing Datastore connection settings into account. If you specify different Datastore connection settings in the command line, these will be ignored. If you want to specify different Datastore settings, you must do this manually after you finished upgrading all components, by navigating to the appropriate user interface of each component.

See the Identity Director Help for an overview of all parameters and how to change the Datastore connection using the command line.
