CPAM to ICPAM Migration Guide

CPAM to ICPAM Migration Guide
Migration of Cisco Physical Access Manager to
the Identiv Connected Physical Access Manager
The following upgrade path from Cisco Physical Access Manager (CPAM) to Identiv Connected
Physical Access Manager (ICPAM) 3.x is supported:

CPAM 1.5.3 to ICPAM 3.x
This procedure assumes that your Cisco Gateways are already running firmware version 1.5.3,
which is the required firmware version for ICPAM 2.1.0 and above.
Note: This procedure only supports migrating from CPAM running v1.5.3 versions, older versions
need to be upgraded to v1.5.3 before migrating to ICPAM 3.x. Systems with older versions can be
upgraded to 1.5.3 by using 1.5.3 upgrade bin file from Cisco. However versions prior to CPAM 1.5.3
utilized a 32 bit operating system and database when upgrading using the Cisco provided .BIN upgrade
file for 1.5.3 from a previous version it does not upgrade either the operating system or the database to
their newer 64 bit versions. It is recommended to upgrade to 1.5.3 from those versions then perform a
backup of the configuration and restore it to a fresh 1.5.3 install to take advantage of the performance
upgrades provided by the 64 bit operating system and database prior to upgrading to ICPAM 3.x.
Regardless of the version you are migrating from, it is recommended that you verify your CPAM
installation is stable and functional before you proceed with the migration. Do not proceed with the
migration until you have verified that your current CPAM installation is functional and working properly.
After you have verified your system is functioning properly, you must complete the Pre-Upgrade
Assessment Checklist and return it to Identiv Technical Support. The Pre-Upgrade Assessment
Checklist is available on the Identiv ICPAM Support page at the following web address:
http://files.identiv.com/products/physical-access/icpam/ICPAMCustomerPreUpgradeAssessmentChecklist.pdf
Once you have completed the Pre-Upgrade Assessment Checklist and returned it to Identiv Technical
Support, they will provide you with the .BIN file required for the upgrade to ICPAM 3.x. The process of
using the BIN file to upgrade is explained on page four of this guide, under the section Upgrade the Active
Server.

1. Stop the CPAM services through the CPAM Web Console
a. If CPAM HA is installed and configured, stop the Standby server from the
Monitoring > Status page by clicking the Stop button
b. Stop the CPAM services on the Active server from the Monitoring > Status page

3. If you are running CPAM in a virtual appliance on VMware it is highly recommended to
snapshot before upgrading.

a. If you are performing a snapshot it is recommended to shut down the server first
as the snapshot will complete faster
b. Once your snapshot is complete boot CPAM server up and log into the CPAM
Web Console and ensure the services are still stopped
4. Upgrade the Active server
a. From the CPAM Web Console for the Active server click on the Setup tab and
Upgrade from the menu on the left
b. In the right pane click the Choose File button and browse for the upgrade BIN
file you downloaded from Identiv after completing the process mentioned on
page one
c. Once you have selected the upgrade file click the Upgrade button
d. The upgrade process time depends on a number of items including but not
limited to database size, server speed and capacity, available disk space, etc.
e. After the file uploads you should see a series of statuses and you will be asked to

ii. To work around you can create a directory outside of Program Files and
install to that folder (i.e. c:\Identiv\ICPAM 3.0.0\)
d. Once the ICPAM Desktop Client is installed login and test your system to ensure
your system is functioning properly.
Note ICPAM 3.0.0 Desktop Client requires Java JRE 1.7 or 1.6, do not use JRE 1.8

7. Upgrade Standby server
a. If you have HA setup on your CPAM server repeat the above steps on the
Standby server after you have successfully completed the upgrade and testing
of the Active server
b. Once the server has been upgraded the Monitoring > Status page should show
services stopped
7
c. Click the Start button to start the services on the Standby server
d. Verify the server status on the Active server on the Monitor > Status page
