Upgrading Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows from an Evaluation Copy

To upgrade Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows (RSSW) from an evaluation copy to a licensed copy, follow the steps below.

Note the following:

  • The licensed copy of RSSW will automatically detect and upgrade the evaluation copy. The licensed copy uses the same install and program data locations as the evaluation copy. All settings and files that are created in a Reflection for Secure IT evaluation copy will be migrated and will run in the licensed copy of RSSW.
  • Backup the RSecureServer folder if you want to use the same host identity, credential cache and server configuration used during evaluation. Evaluation copies versioned 8.2 SP1 and higher use the path C:ProgramDataMicro FocusRSecureServer to store and read data. Earlier versions used the path C:ProgramDataAttachmateRSecureServer.
  1. (Optional) Back up the RSSW’s host key, credential cache and server configuration files before you install the licensed copy. The files are located in C:ProgramDataMicro FocusRSecureServer.

Files:

a. The RSSW configuration file is rsshd_config.xml.

b. The RSSW’s host key pair files are hostkey and hostkey.pub.

c. The RSSW’s credential cache uses RSITDatabase and RSITDatabase.sec.

d. The Logs folder contains debug logs, audit logs and the console validation log.

  1. Browse to the folder where you downloaded the installation package rsit-winserv-<version>-product.exe and double left mouse click the executable to begin the installation.
  2. The Reflection Installation Wizard will display the following message: “A prior version of this product was detected and will be replaced by the contents of this installation package.” Click Continue.
  3. Accept the license agreement and click Continue.
  4. The installer displays three tabs: User Information, File Locations, and Advanced options, which enables you to select the installation type (install to this PC or create an administrative installation).

The licensed version will detect and use your previous settings. Even if you choose a different file location to install the licensed version, the evaluation program files will be removed by the upgrade installation.

  1. Click Upgrade.
  2. After the upgrade is complete, you will be prompted to restart the computer. Select “Restart my computer for me” to have the installer restart the computer, or click Close to restart the computer at a later time.

Installation Notes:

  • The server requires Microsoft XML Parser. If the evaluation copy of Reflection for Secure IT has been installed and running, then Microsoft XML Parser should already be installed. If this parser is not already present on your system, the setup program installs it.
  • Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows 8.3 installs MSVC++ runtime version 14.15 from Visual Studio 2017. The files are included in the 8.3 MSI installer and are no longer included as a prerequisite installer as in 8.2. You may see a “Files in use, Some applications that need to be updated are currently in use.” message pop up during the installation of 8.3, even with Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable already installed. This happens when MSVC++ 2017 has lower version files, e.g. 14.12, than included with the 8.3 installer. You can either choose to “Automatically close and attempt to restart these applications” or “Do not close these applications. (a reboot will be required). Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows requires a server reboot to complete its installation.

Upgrading Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows from an Evaluation Copy

To upgrade Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows (RSSW) from an evaluation copy to a licensed copy, follow the steps below.

Note the following:

  • The licensed copy of RSSW will automatically detect and upgrade the evaluation copy. The licensed copy uses the same install and program data locations as the evaluation copy. All settings and files that are created in a Reflection for Secure IT evaluation copy will be migrated and will run in the licensed copy of RSSW.
  • Backup the RSecureServer folder if you want to use the same host identity, credential cache and server configuration used during evaluation. Evaluation copies versioned 8.2 SP1 and higher use the path C:ProgramDataMicro FocusRSecureServer to store and read data. Earlier versions used the path C:ProgramDataAttachmateRSecureServer.
  1. (Optional) Back up the RSSW’s host key, credential cache and server configuration files before you install the licensed copy. The files are located in C:ProgramDataMicro FocusRSecureServer.

Files:

a. The RSSW configuration file is rsshd_config.xml.

b. The RSSW’s host key pair files are hostkey and hostkey.pub.

c. The RSSW’s credential cache uses RSITDatabase and RSITDatabase.sec.

d. The Logs folder contains debug logs, audit logs and the console validation log.

  1. Browse to the folder where you downloaded the installation package rsit-winserv-<version>-product.exe and double left mouse click the executable to begin the installation.
  2. The Reflection Installation Wizard will display the following message: “A prior version of this product was detected and will be replaced by the contents of this installation package.” Click Continue.
  3. Accept the license agreement and click Continue.
  4. The installer displays three tabs: User Information, File Locations, and Advanced options, which enables you to select the installation type (install to this PC or create an administrative installation).

The licensed version will detect and use your previous settings. Even if you choose a different file location to install the licensed version, the evaluation program files will be removed by the upgrade installation.

  1. Click Upgrade.
  2. After the upgrade is complete, you will be prompted to restart the computer. Select “Restart my computer for me” to have the installer restart the computer, or click Close to restart the computer at a later time.

Installation Notes:

  • The server requires Microsoft XML Parser. If the evaluation copy of Reflection for Secure IT has been installed and running, then Microsoft XML Parser should already be installed. If this parser is not already present on your system, the setup program installs it.
  • Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows 8.3 installs MSVC++ runtime version 14.15 from Visual Studio 2017. The files are included in the 8.3 MSI installer and are no longer included as a prerequisite installer as in 8.2. You may see a “Files in use, Some applications that need to be updated are currently in use.” message pop up during the installation of 8.3, even with Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable already installed. This happens when MSVC++ 2017 has lower version files, e.g. 14.12, than included with the 8.3 installer. You can either choose to “Automatically close and attempt to restart these applications” or “Do not close these applications. (a reboot will be required). Reflection for Secure IT Server for Windows requires a server reboot to complete its installation.
