Vault 2.0.6 Release Notes

Post by dan » Tue Sep 07, 2004 9:07 am

The following features and changes have been included in the 2.0.6 release:
<b>Client Only Changes</b>
<LI>Client Status Pane now works properly with .Net framework 1.1 SP1

<b>Server Only Changes</b>

<b>Client/Server Changes</b>
<i>Both client and server must be upgraded to take advantage of these changes:</i>
<LI>The .Net framework 2.0 Beta no longer corrupts the Vault database. (NOTE: Other Vault operations have not been fully tested with .Net Framework 2.0 Beta.)
<LI>A folder getlabel from the command line will now get file labels of the same name underneath that folder

<b>Client/Server Version Compatibility</b>
It is always recommended that your client and server versions match exactly (e.g., a 2.0.6 client should be connecting to a 2.0.6 server). 2.0.x clients should be able to communicate with any 2.0.x server, but specific bug fixes will not work correctly if they required both client and server changes. 2.0.x clients and servers are incompatible with 1.1.x or 1.0.x clients and servers.

The Vault Admin Tool must match the version of the Vault Server for the Admin Tool to work properly.

<b>Upgrading From Previous Versions</b>
It is recommended that you backup your Vault database prior to an upgrade. This can be done from either the Vault Admin tool, or the SQL Enterprise Manager tool.

To upgrade from a previous installation of Vault, simply invoke the new installer, and choose the same options that were selected when Vault was previously installed. Program files and configuration settings will be automatically updated to reflect the upgrade. Note that the server installation will not delete your database unless you explicitly tell it to.

You may also safely uninstall Vault first, and then install the upgrade. As with installation, an uninstall will not delete your database unless you explicitly tell it to.

NOTE: The Vault 2.0 server cannot be upgraded from a Vault 1.0 server installation (which includes Vault 1.0.1, 1.0.2 and 1.0.3), due to changes in installer technology. The Vault database can be upgraded, but the server installation itself cannot.

If you are currently running Vault 1.0, you can first upgrade from Vault 1.0 to Vault 1.1 or 1.2, and then upgrade to 2.0. Additionally, you can uninstall Vault 1.0, and then install Vault 2.0 as a new installation. Be sure to not delete your database when uninstalling, and to choose the existing database on the fresh install.
