|Applies To||RSA Product Set: RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle|
RSA Product/Service Type: Virtual Application Installation
RSA Version/Condition: 7.1.0
Application Server: WildFly 10
|Issue||We are currently working on a technical design for upgrading from RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle 7.0.2 P09 to 7.1. We currently are configured for the Software Bundle with remote customer-supplied database. |
For a Virtual application (OVA) with customer-supplied database, what is the back out (rollback) option when implementing application patches in RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle Version 7.1 environment?
|Resolution||RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle does not provide rollback functionality to the previous version. However, RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle also provides a backup and restore scripts below:|
The backup procedure applies only to hardware appliance, software bundle, and virtual application (OVA) deployments. The backup procedure also backs up keystore files in following directory:
You can restore a product version only on a machine that has the same version installed. You must also use a database dump from the same version to restore the database data and associated KEK and keystore files.
For more information, please review following sections from Appendix C: Maintenance of the RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.1 Installation Guide:
The process of reinstalling the .ova would be as described in Chapter 5 Virtual Application Installation of the RSA Identity Governance and Lifecycle 7.1 Installation Guide. Then you can apply desired/previous patch to which you want to roll back.
The recommended approach would be to use RSA Identity Governance & Lifecycle Backup and Restore Script, as mentioned above for supported deployments.
