19.0 Upgrading Analytics Server

You can upgrade to the 5.0 version of Analytics Server only from the early access beta release and the Analytics Server 4.5 Service Pack 3 Hotfix 1 releases.

Hence, you cannot migrate the existing events realtime or offline indices from any earlier version other than the early access beta release and Analytics Server 4.5 Service Pack 3 Hotfix 1 release to the 5.0 version. However, you can use the new Analytics Server along with the earlier Sentinel-based Analytics Server for events to be captured in both until all the data become available in the new dashboard. For this, you need to configure two target servers, one for the old and one for the new Analytics Server. For more information, see Setting Up Logging Server and Console Events in the NetIQ Access Manager 5.0 Administration Guide.

You cannot launch the old Analytics Server and reports from Administration Console. Instead, you can access the old data using the following direct access links:

  • Dashboard: https://<Analytics IP>:8445/amdashboard/login

  • Reports: https:// <Analytics IP>:8443/sentinel
