Considerations for upgrades from
Good Control
and
Good Proxy

If you are upgrading to
BlackBerry UEM
from
Good Control
or
Good Proxy
, make sure your servers meet the requirements for the
BlackBerry UEM
configuration you are upgrading to.
When you upgrade a
Good Proxy
node, it is upgraded to a
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
. A
Good Control
node is upgraded to a
BlackBerry UEM
node that includes primary components and management console, without a
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
.
For upgrades from a
Good Control
node that is
not
integrated with
BES12
version 12.5, consider migrating your data, users, and devices to
BlackBerry UEM
:
  1. Upgrade
    Good Control
    to
    Good Control
    version 5.0.
  2. Migrate your data from
    Good Control
    to
    BlackBerry UEM
    version 12.8.1 or later.
Upgrading using this method minimizes the hardware requirements for the upgrade, and reduces the amount of post-upgrade decommissioning tasks. This method also allows you to move data, users, and devices in stages.
To determine if this is an appropriate course of action for your environment, first read the information about migration in the Configuration content.
