Starting with Fall 2016 the entire installation and update processes for on-premise customers is overhauled and simplified. Going forward, updates to Cartegraph OMS will be faster and more seamless. Cartegraph has adopted the industry standard for deploying .NET Web applications called: Octopus Deploy. Read more about it here: https://octopus.com/why.
What the IT Department needs to know and do before the next upgrade:
- Open outgoing ports #10943 and #443 are required to octopus.cartegraph.com from your Cartegraph OMS Web server and Cartegraph OMS Application server.
You can test this out from the app and web server by opening a browser and going to this URL: https://octopus.cartegraph.com:10943/. You will get a certificate error, but if you proceed past that, it will tell you if your server can reach our server on that port.
- Some initial configurations by Cartegraph support are needed, including the installation of a new service called OctopusDeploy Tentacle on your Cartegraph OMS Web server and Cartegraph OMS Application server.
With Octopus Deploy Cartegraph OMS updates are not done automatically without your permission.
After your first update to Fall 2016, subsequent updates to Cartegraph OMS will be a lot smoother!
