The upgrade methods are similar to the methods for installing a new product. You run the installation program from a graphical user interface (GUI) or from a command line. This section provides an overview of the upgrade process and the procedures for performing platform upgrades with the GUI and command-line options.

- Performing the upgrade
- Upgrading silently
- Importing certificates into BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform components after upgrade
Before upgrading to 7.7.x, ensure that you install BMC Atrium Single Sign-On first. For information about installing BMC Atrium Single Sign-On, see Installing.
When you upgrade from 7.6.02.06 or 7.6.03 to 7.7, the Access Manager component is replaced by BMC Atrium Single Sign-On. In BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform 7.7 and SP1, you were required to manually create the user roles and permissions existing in Access Manager in BMC Atrium Single Sign-On. In BMC Atrium Orchestrator 7.7 Service Pack 2, a migration utility/tool is provided, which exports all authentication data from Access Manager and then allows you to import the data in Grid Manager.
You must run the migration tool before you start with the upgrade. For more information, see Migrating authentication and authorization data from Access Manager.
