The best news about this release is the “easy installer“, which also allows you to migrate from older versions. In this post, I’ve documented the screenshots in steps for you, as I know many of you out there like to see the end to end process before you undergo an update yourself, so you know what to expect.
During this migration process the following will happen;
- New LCM virtual appliance deployed
- New IDM appliance deployed (unless you select to link to an existing environment)
- Existing LCM settings and content will be migrated
