Upgrading from Access Manager 7.3.927 to AM 7.5
« on: 16 Sep 2013 10:10:30 am »
Hello, we currently have AM 7.3927 on a Windows 2003 box.  We want to upgrade to AM 7.5 on a windows 2008 box.  Has anyone done this? If so what were the issues?  Thanks in advance for any input.

You shouldn't run into any problems. Easy to test as well. Just grab your export and bring it in.

If you are currently using Sun One ldap that was included with cognos as user directory, you need to find an alternative:
  Sun Java System Directory Server software is no longer supplied with IBM Cognos Series 7, as of version 7.4.4, or with Cognos Finance as of version 7.5.

Speaking of alternative LDAPs, has anyone actually used anything else than ActiveDirectory or the Sun One LDAP from earlier cognos versions (this is what I used) as backend for AccessManager 7.5?

I am quite interested in alternatives people have used to Sun ONE Directory Server as well. We're facing the exact same 2003 to 2008 R2 upgrade issue.

Thanks, Daniel

 Hi

  We are currently using Cognos Access Manager 7.4 with Sun One Directory server in the backend. We are planning to migrate the Access Manager to version 7.5 in recent future. Please let me know whether taking a backup lae file and importing it the version 7.5 will make the application run as it is. Or we need to make some other configuration changes to make the cognos portal work correctly. My main concern is how to switch the portal from pointing to 7.5 from existing 7.4.If there is a change in CAMID , then that may lead to a condition where no one is able to view the reports in the portal though they exist.

Please help .

thanks in advance
