Neverfail Upgrade Plug-in V201.5.1 - Release Notes



This Knowledgebase article provides information about this specific release of the Neverfail Upgrade Plug-in V201.5.1.

More Information

The Neverfail Upgrade Plug-in is designed to preserve custom Neverfail Heartbeat configuration settings used in pre-V5.3 installations during the migration to Neverfail Heartbeat V5.3.0 and later. The documented step-by-step instructions for the migration process provided in Knowledgebase article #1333 - 'Neverfail Upgrade Plug-in - Online Help' must be followed to preserve custom configuration settings successfully.

CAUTION: Please note that the upgrade procedure, and therefore migration of user-customized settings, relies on the correct use of the current V5.3[.n] Setup utility during the upgrade procedure. If a previous version of Setup.exe is used, customizations will be lost, including:
  • Alert settings
  • Communication Configurations
    • Split brain avoidance
    • Heartbeat checks
  • User specified File Filters
  • Registry Filters
  • Customizations in Start & Stop Scripts including
    • Services
    • Custom Commands.
