If you are using the Global Cardholder Synchronizer (GCS) role in your system, there are important limitations that you need to be aware of when you upgrade your system to 5.7.
- The GCS roles hosted on expansion servers running Security
Center 5.6 or earlier cannot connect
to the 5.7 Directory.If you have GCS roles hosted on expansion servers, you have two options:
- Move the GCS role to the main server hosting the Directory role.
- Keep the GCS role on the expansion server, but deactivate the role until both the main and expansion servers are running Security Center 5.7 GA or later.
- A 5.7 GCS role (sharing guest)
cannot connect to a sharing host running Security
Center 5.6 or earlier.
This means that you upgrade your system (sharing guest) to Security Center 5.7, the sharing host system must be running Security Center 5.7 GA or later.
The good news is, if your system is the sharing host, the sharing guests systems that are still running Security Center 5.6 or earlier can still connect to your system.
