System Requirements for the Aptify CM Tool

CM Tool First Release

This is first official release of the Aptify Configuration Migration (CM) Tool. If you have any questions or problems using the tool please contact Aptify Technical Support. Your feedback is appreciated!

The CM Tool DOES NOT Need to be Installed with 5.5.5

If your source and destination server are both running Aptify 5.5.5 and higher, the Aptify Configuration Migration (CM) Tool is already installed and can be launched directly from the Aptify desktop interface, you do not need to install CM Tool. However, if either is running a lower version of Aptify, you will need to install the CM Tool on the server.

This topic contains the hardware and software requirements for running this version of Aptify Configuration Migration (CM) Tool on either a source or destination server: 

Server Hardware and Software Requirements

Supported Aptify Versions and Recommendations

This release of the CM Tool supports environments running Aptify 5.5.1 and higher. Aptify recommends packing and unpacking on servers running the same version of Aptify as this is the most successful path.

You can pack and unpack on different versions of Aptify. Aptify has run numerous testing scenarios and has several validation rules in place to help prevent failures in these cases. For example, in newer versions of Aptify there are certain cases where a newly required field is introduced, where an older version did not include such fields. However, as each organization's environment is unique, not ever case could be tested so there may still be cases that fail. If you run into any issues with packing or unpacking configurations, contact Aptify Technical Support.

 The Aptify CM Tool support packing and unpacking supports For the Aptify CM Tool to work as expected, the source and destination servers must have the same version of the CM Tool and the Aptify Desktop client software installed. Also, the source and destination servers must have an active Aptify Object Repository. Refer to the server hardware and software requirements for running the Aptify Desktop on your version of Aptify:

The server hardware and software requirements for running the CM Tool are same as those defined for your version of Aptify: Our testing for current version is for the latest Aptify version, but should not mean that people should be using older CM tool version for 5.5.1 or 5.5.2.

Note Concerning Windows Updates

 Aptify recommends that you install the latest updates to the Windows server where you will be installing the Aptify CM Tool.

Database Server Software Requirements

The source Aptify database server version should match the version on the destination Aptify database server. For example, if the source server has Aptify 5.5.4 installed, the destination server must also have 5.5.4.

For Aptify 5.5.1 and 5.5.4 - Hotfixes are Required

For system running Aptify 5.5.1 or Aptify 5.5.4, the following hotfixes should be applied:

  • For Aptify 5.5.1: An error may occur and the pack may fail to unpack successfully when unpacking sub-types entities on an environment running Aptify 5.5.1. APTIFY_551_HOTFIX_22233 is included in the CMTool distribution file and should be applied to both source and destination servers running Aptify 5.5.1.
  • For Aptify 5.5.4: Process flows may not include all appropriate data (for example, Process Flow Actions, etc.) when unpacking on an environment running Aptify 5.5.4. APTIFY_554_HOTFIX_23421 is included in the CM Tool distribution file and should be applied to both source and destination servers running Aptify 5.5.4.
