I will be upgrading our Authentication Manager from 8.1 to 8.1SP1 to and had some questions:

We have an 8.1 appliance and one VM replica and a web tier running.


During the primary upgrade from 8.1 to 8.1SP1 will the VM replica authenticate users?


I'm planning to update the RSA AM by first updating the primary to 8.1SP1 then the VM Replica to 8.1SP1, Once completed will do the primary to and then the VM Replica to

We will also be upgrading the Web Tier to was wondering When that should be done was planning to do it after the patch on the VM Replica.


we have a schedule setup so I have plenty of backups of the AM.


If I'm missing anything let me know or if there is a better way to do this process.  at some poing I'm assuming the AM will be down an unable to authenticate users does this sound correct?



Thank you,
