The following known issues require workarounds/remediation prior to and/or immediately after the migration part of the upgrade process:
A new installation or an upgrade of software bundle deployment, using a remote database, to 7.5.2 P03 fails with error: Could not find necessary package adoptjdk_8u292b10.tar.gz
Refer to the KB article 000067960 for a workaround.
BSAFE crypto libraries embedded in the SecurID Governance & Lifecycle product were updated which require IBM WebSphere Application Server based deployments to use IBM JDK 1.8.0_281 or later.
IBM JDK version must be 1.8.0_281 or later when SecurID Governance & Lifecyle 7.5.2 P03 is deployed on IBM WebSphere Application Server. Refer to the SecurID Governance & Lifecycle 7.5.2 P03 release notes for more details.
