Summary of upgrade from version 3.5 to version 4.0

Several upgrade tasks are new or require special consideration with this upgrade. Apply upgrade tasks as appropriate for your system design, as follows:
  • All systems:
    • GV STRATUS software installation automatically creates and installs a security certificate on the GV STRATUS Core server. No manual steps are required.
    • Schedule Monitor, Security Manager: After the upgrade, existing users and groups do not have these roles assigned, so you must assign the roles if appropriate. If you create new users and groups, some roles are assigned by default, so you must remove those roles if appropriate.
    • Require the upgrade of SNFS (StoreNext File System) version 4.7.2 if you are upgrading to K2 9.5 system. For more details, refer to the "Upgrading K2 systems" section of the K2 Topic Library.
  • Systems with EDIUS and GV Render Engine server:
  • Systems with Remote Site configured:
    • Verify and configure Remote Site settings. GV STRATUS security requires re-entering existing information and configuring new settings.
  • Systems with MEWS Server:

  • Systems with GV STRATUS Rundown:
