Hi there,

I am looking for the deployment guide for the upgrade from HM 6.x on premises to HM NG on premises. I could find deployment guide for the online version, though.
I have downloaded the .ova file for the hivemanagerNG virtual appliance.
What are the steps to follow?
Can I just backup the config files and restore the database in HM NG?
Please help.
Cheers,

Fatima, if you have the deployment guide for HiveManager 6.x you should be able to use this as 'rough' guide as the steps will be largely similar.

Hi Fatima, no such guide the suggested comment is probably best approach. Aerohive has done a poor job of providing such support guides. I do advise that if you have access to your sales engineer you reach out to him or her for support. One gotcha you have to look out for is your APs reverting back to HM6 if both NG and HM6 are running at the same time.


There is a guide that will show you how to import APs from HM6 into NG and I will share when I find it. Stay tuned. Good luck.
