Migration: A migration is when you install the latest version of the IT Management Suite solutions on a new server, and then migrate the data from the earlier ITMS solutions to the latest version of the application.

Upgrade: An upgrade is when you install the latest version of ITMS on the same hardware, server operating system, and database.

You must migrate the Notification Server 6.x or 7.0 data to either Notification Server 7.1 SP2 or Notification Server 7.5. After migrating the data, you must first upgrade to either ITMS 7.1 SP2 MP1.1 or ITMS 7.5 HF6 depending on the path you choose and then upgrade to ITMS 7.5 SP1.

The following diagram gives an overview of the migration and upgrade process:

Trying to be nice here. SIM is frustrating. No product is more certain to bring an SMP server's resources to its knees.

So, word to the wise. ALWAYS close SIM when you've finished using it.

Hello all,

Today I ran into the above mentioned problem whilst trying to perform a clean install of ITMS 7.5, so I thought I would share what worked and what didn't.

Windows 2008 SP1 R2 with SQL 2012 SP1.

SQL was initially configured for Windows Authentication.  When SIM failed, I manually created the database to no avail.

I then changed to mixed authentication and changed the SA account (as I obviously didn't know what the original one was) via the UI.  Unfortuantely, the SA account had the same problem.

What worked was running the following query:

USE master
GO
ALTER LOGIN [sa] WITH PASSWORD=N'NewSAPassword', CHECK_POLICY = OFF
GO
ALTER LOGIN [sa] ENABLE
GO

This allowed SIM to create the database and begin the installation phase.  Once ITMS 7.5 was installed, and the 9 hotfixes (required a rebot beforehand), I opened the Database Settings page and switched to the AppId so that...

With my customer we have moved from a central Software Update Policy model, using ZeroDayPatch, to avoid replication issues (we had some malfunctioning policies upon replication that caused a less than optimal compliance level).

It works very well, but we have some issues with some bulletins for which creating a policy was proving very difficult. The symptom is that when you create a new policy for the impacted bulletins, loading the policy will cause a general error (when you get the database error message). And on the "Home > Patch Management > Bulletin and Updates" grid view the bulletin will not show any policy associated even after a refresh.

To cut a long story short the problem lies in replication, as you could have guessed form the environment. The issue here is that revised updates are handled on the parent server and replicated down the hierarchy, however the update that was revised (the previous version), which is deleted on the parent, is not deleted...

The following query will list the contents of all item folders found within the console:

SELECT vi1.Name As Folder,vi2.Name AS Item
FROM vItem vi1
JOIN vItemFolder vif ON vif.ParentFolderGuid = vi1.[Guid]
JOIN vItem vi2 ON vi2.[Guid] = vif.ItemGuid
ORDER BY Folder,Item ASC
--WHERE vif.ParentFolderGuid = 'folderguid'
--WHERE vi1.Name = 'foldername'

If you wish to use one of the WHERE clauses, then make sure you remark (--) the ORDER BY line.
