IMC 7.2 released

FYI, IMC 7.2 has been released.

Download here: https://h10145.www1.hpe.com/Downloads/SoftwareReleases.aspx?ProductNumber=JG747AAE&lang=en&cc=us&prodSeriesId=4176535

This can be installed on a new system, or you can upgrade existing 7.1 systems. 

Lots of new features & bug fixes.

Re: IMC 7.2 released

I'm thinking of building a fresh install. I suspect my current install has some issues from too many updates...

Is there an easy way to migrate the db forward after its built? - Update: release notes say no

           So maybe build up fresh 7.1 install, import DB then update to 7.2?

How about the licenses?

thx

Re: IMC 7.2 released

Hmm, gets a bit tricky trying to import DBs, and while you might clean up a few issues, you'll probably bring a few across with the DB.

I tend to think that the best way to do this sort of cleanup/migration is to minimise the amount of data that you pull across. That might mean just dumping a list of devices, importing those into a new system, and manually setting up the groups, etc.

 

Maybe you could install a new instance, and run both in parallel for a short time while you manually migrate settings? 

You'll probably need to get your licenses migrated, but that shouldn't be too much of a problem if you've got active support.

Yes, and that would allow testing the new version along side, which is a good thing.. UAM is my critical function and that's not out as 7.2 yet, but needs to be proven first. Yes I do have support.

But it's still a lot of configuring to re-do unfortunately as I've done a fair amount of stuff with imc, in trying out all the features. 

thx

Bit of a tricky one, trying to balance migration effort vs possible cleanups.

I guess UAM 7.2 won't be too far away. Looks like iNode 7.2 is already released, and some of the other modules are starting to come through (e.g. NTA)

Re: IMC 7.2 released

Well I set up my test vm for this and can't install it - I think the install script has an error somewhere. I get this error:

Begin to install database and data...
--------------------------------
Begin to create config_db foreground tables and data...
Warning: Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.
ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'imc_config'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

Installing on Win 2012r2 with MySQL 5.6 - it creates the DB table and the user but then tries another operation with that user and fails so I think someone mistyped the pw in the script.

I've put a call into techsupport for another issue, but still waiting on call back from that one.

BTW - any thoughts on mySQL vs embededed SQL server xpress for smaller installations (<1000 nodes is their criteria)?

I seem to recall having some problems along those lines on a Linux/MySQL install when I didn't have the MySQL authentication setup quite right. It was a while ago, but I think the issue was related to having not explicitly configured MySQL to allow a password when connecting to a DB on the same host.

Regards SQL Express, I wouldn't use it for more than ~100 nodes. Definitely not 1000 nodes. I'd prefer to use full SQL Server or MySQL. I haven't tried using MySQL on Windows though, I've only used it on Linux. It *should* be OK on Windows.
