ADAudit Plus Service Pack

We recommend users move to the latest version, ADAudit Plus 8.0 build 8000 (released in Mar 2024). We also recommend that you back up the existing ADAudit Plus installation before upgrading as this helps prevent accidental loss of data.

Note: Depending on your current build number, you may need to apply a series of service packs before you can upgrade to the latest build.  If you have to install more than one service pack, exit Update Manager after every installation.

Steps to apply the service pack

Note: If you are using an ADAudit Plus build with MySQL backend, we recommend that you migrate to PostgreSQL before March 31, 2023. Click here for more details.
  1. Stop the ADAudit Plus server (Start > Run. Type services.msc and stop ManageEngine ADAudit Plus).
  2. Back up the existing ADAudit Plus installation by following any of the steps below:
    • Take a snapshot of the computer on which ADAudit Plus is installed.
      • Zip the entire product installation folder, i.e.:
        <Installation_folder>\ManageEngine\ADAudit Plus
    • Take a backup of the database:
      • Go to <Installation_folder>\ManageEngine\ADAudit Plus\bin and execute backupDB.bat in the Command Prompt.
  3. Go to <Installation_folder>\ManageEngine\ADAudit Plus\bin, open the Command Prompt using Run as administrator, and then execute UpdateManager.bat.

    Note: You will be prompted to back up configuration data as a precaution. If you have already taken a back up of ADAudit Plus as mentioned in Step 2 (which we recommend), type n to proceed with the installation. Otherwise, type y to back up the database.

  4. Click Browse and select the downloaded PPM file.
  5. Click Install to start the installation process. If you are upgrading to version 7051 or above, the import certificate dialog box appears as shown below:

    service-pack installation process

    • If you are applying the service pack to upgrade to build 7260, click here to download the certificate.
    • If you are applying the service pack to upgrade to build 7270 or above, click here to download the certificate.
    Note: The certificate is applied as a security measure to avoid the risk of a tampered service pack (PPM) file.
  6. Click Browse and locate the certificate.

    service-pack installation process

  7. Click Import. Follow the on-screen instructions and continue the upgrade process.
    Note: This is a one-time process and the certificate will be automatically applied during future upgrades. Wait until the upgrade completes. Do not terminate the service pack upgrade process prematurely. If you are applying multiple service packs, ensure that you exit the Update Manager after each installation.
  1. Stop the ADAudit Plus server (Start > Run. Type services.msc and stop ManageEngine ADAudit Plus).
  2. Back up the existing ADAudit Plus installation by following any of the steps below:
    • Take a snapshot of the computer on which ADAudit Plus is installed.
      • Zip the entire product installation folder, i.e.:
        <Installation_folder>\ManageEngine\ADAudit Plus
    • Take a backup of the database using the detach and attach method:
      • Log in to Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
      • Right-click on the database (DB) that you want to move (eg: adap). Select Task > Detach.
      • In the Detach DB wizard, check both boxes next to Drop Connections and Update Statistics, and click Ok.
      • Go to the DB storage path (E.g.: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\DATA). Copy the .mdf and .ldf files (eg: adap.mdf and adap_log.ldf).
      • Save both of the above files in any desired location (to ensure there is a backup).
      • Log in to Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio.
      • Right-click on Databases > Task > Attach.
      • In the Attach DB wizard, click Add.
      • Select the .mdf file from the existing DB storage path (eg: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\DATA), and click Ok (the .ldf file will be selected automatically).
  3. Run the following command from the Run dialog box to open the Command Prompt as a different user: cmd /k runas /user:<domain\username> cmd. Replace <domain\username> with the actual domain and the username of the account you want to use depending on your authentication type.
    • If you are using Windows Authentication to connect to MS SQL in ADAudit Plus, enter the username of the Active Directory service account used by ADAudit Plus configured under Services.msc > ManageEngine ADAudit Plus > Log On and provide the password when prompted.
    • If you are using SQL Server Authentication, enter the username of an Active Directory account that has write access to the ADAudit Plus installation folder and provide the password when prompted.

    Redirect the Command Prompt to <Installation_Folder>\ManageEngine\ADAudit Plus\bin and execute the UpdateManager.bat file.

    Note: You will be prompted to back up configuration data as a precaution. If you have already taken a backup of ADAudit Plus as mentioned in Step 2 (which we recommend), type n to proceed with the installation. Otherwise, type y to back up the database.
