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. 


This version of BMC Atrium Orchestrator does not support the use of custom realms. 

Before upgrading

Before upgrading, review the following information.
  • Before upgrading to 7.6.03 to 7.8.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 7.6.03 to 7.8.x, the Access Manager component is replaced by BMC Atrium Single Sign-On. 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 
  • Make copies of server.xml and broker-config.xml files before upgrading. For more information, see Backing up server.xml and broker-config.xml files.
  • Before upgrading to BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform version 7.8.02 or later, if your BMC Atrium Orchestrator environment will use HTTPS, ensure that your environment supports TLS secure transport protocol.

For a list of supported upgrade paths, see Preparing for upgrade.
