To upgrade a composite Security Center system involving Global Cardholder Synchronizer (GCS) roles, you must upgrade the sharing host system first, then upgrade the sharing guest systems.

Before you begin

Back up the Directory databases of your sharing host and sharing guest systems.

What you should know

The Global Cardholder Synchronizer role ensures the two-way synchronization of shared cardholders and their related entities between the local system (sharing guest) where it resides and the central system (sharing host). For more information, see Global cardholder management.

Procedure

  1. Disconnect the sharing guests from the sharing host.
    Do one of the following:
    • Deactivate the GCS roles on the sharing guest systems.
    • Temporarily change the passwords of the GCS role user accounts.
  2. Upgrade the sharing host system first.
  3. Upgrade the sharing guest systems next.
  4. Confirm that the upgrades were successful.
  5. Reconnect the sharing guests to the sharing host.
    Do one of the following:
    • If you deactivated the GCS roles on the sharing guest systems, reactivate them.
    • If you changed the passwords of the GCS role user accounts, change them back.
  6. Give the sharing guests some time to sync with the sharing host.
