Considerations before upgrading Secret Server to .NET Framework 4.5.1

Root > Secret Server

The items below should be referenced before upgrading Secret Server from version 8.4.000004 to the latest version (8.5.000000 or higher), which uses .NET Framework 4.5.1. Note that this will require a small amount of downtime for the site, and to plan accordingly.

IIS Application Pool

At the end of the application upgrade, you will be required to manually change the settings on your IIS application pool to use .NET CLR Version v4.0.30319. For instructions on modifying the application pool settings, see Changing the Application Pool to .NET 4.0. If you use a clustered environment, you will need to shut down all servers but the primary, and then upgrade the primary server. As part of the upgrade process for your secondary servers, you will also need to manually upgrade their application pools in IIS. See Upgrading Secret Server for more information about upgrading.

Remote Agent

Before upgrading Secret Server to use .NET Framework 4.5.1, any existing Agents you use will also need to have .NET Framework 4.5.1 installed to function correctly post-upgrade. For more information about obtaining the .NET Framework 4.5.1, please see Installing the .NET Framework 4.5.1.

Note   If you upgraded to Secret Server version 8.4.000004 (or 8.4) before March 20, 2014, your existing Agents will not be able to automatically upgrade themselves. To resolve this, see Fix agents that cannot automatically upgrade. If you upgraded to version 8.4.000004 after March 20, 2014, a fix has already been implemented and you will not be required to take any extra action.
