Considerations for upgrades from Good Control and Good Proxy
If you are upgrading to
Good Proxy, make sure your servers meet the requirements for the
BlackBerry UEMconfiguration you are upgrading to.
When you upgrade a
Good Proxynode, it is upgraded to a
BlackBerry Connectivity Node. A
Good Controlnode is upgraded to a
BlackBerry UEMnode that includes primary components and management console, without a
BlackBerry Connectivity Node.
For upgrades from a
Good Controlnode that is
BES12version 12.5, consider migrating your data, users, and devices to
- UpgradeGood ControltoGood Controlversion 5.0.
- Migrate your data fromGood ControltoBlackBerry UEMversion 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.
