SAP Afaria 7 SP6 available, how to update to it
SP6 for Afaria 7 is available for download at support portal from SAP. It comes with some significant changes, like support for Windows 2012/2012 R2 and Android for Work. As SP5 is from September 2014, it makes 100% sense to update to SP6 as soon as you can. If you are wondering how to do that and what to expect during the update process, I have published some blogs on my website showing the procedure and a simple validation of the installation. The blogs contain a lot of screenshots: 84 in total. You can see it as a walkthrough.
The blogs are:
- Afaria 7 – Update to SP6
- Install Afaria Server
- Install Afaria API Service and Administrator
- Install Self Service Portal
- Install Enrollment Server
- Install Package Server
- Validation of Afaria 7 SP6
The update is an easy task to do, basically you “reinstall” Afaria 7. Luckily all the previously configuration data is read by the setup program, no need to enter everything again!
