I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but we would like to prepare things for when v8 is released.  I have a few questions, that I suspect many other folks will have too.

1. We have v7 Suite.  If you install v8 Suite on the same pc, are there any issues?  Will it install in a separate folder or 'over the top' of v7?  Is it best to only run v8?

2. We have many "shared" actions, install packages, etc in v7.  Will these be compatible to use with v8, or would it better to recreate these in v8?

3. If you have both v7 and v8 using the same 'shared' application directory, will this cause a problem?  Is it best to use a new & separate shared application directory for v8?

3. Will the workstation agent need to be updated?  If so, will the new v8 agent "replace" the v7 agent, or will both versions be installed?  Is it best to first 'remove' the v7 agent prior to installing the v8 agent?

4. If the new v8 agent is deployed to workstations, would v7 Suite still be able to interact with the workstations if the v7 agent no longer exists?  (We would most likely convert everyone to v8 so this isn't a big concern, but there could be a few stragglers still running v7 Suite as we transition to v8 Suite.)

Thank you.

Hemo2,

These are all valid questions. 

  1. Goverlan v7 and v8 will remain completely independent. v7 will only talk to v7 agents and v8 will only talk to v8 agents. The console versions will also remain independent.
  2. Goverlan v8 will now be implementing a database approach to storing objects. Objects will then be shared using the Team Collaboration feature in Goverlan.  Since this a vastly different approach, at the current time you will need to recreate the objects in v8.
  3. Using the same Shared Data Directory will not be an issue with v8 or v7. v8 Will use the Shared Data Directory to store its SQLITE database file so all Goverlan users can see the historical data and use the Team Collaboration features.
  4. As stated in point number 1. The agents will be completely independent. Goverlan v8 agents will run as GovSRVv8.exe and communicate on tcp port 21158 while v7 agents Govsrv.exe will run on tcp port 21159.
  5. Since there is a separation of agents, neither will conflict with each other.
I understand that migrating your data from v7 can be a long task. Since Goverlan v7 is separate from v8 You do not need to cut over right away. 
We are researching a way to have the data transferred programmatically.

What is
Goverlan SureData Technology
Technology?

SUREDATA is a Real-Time & Database-Driven Query Engine that guarantees the most complete and accurate view of your environment.

System management solutions that are database-driven ensure data availability but may not be current. Real-time solutions are responsive and current but they can’t handle offline devices.

With GOVERLAN’s SURE-DATA Technology you don’t have to trade off accuracy for availability - the data is directly queried from the system in real-time, then registered into a database back-end. If a system is offline, GOVERLAN automatically pulls the information from the database.

SURE-DATA gives you the best of both worlds - accuracy and availability of information on every machine, online or offline.
