Installation & Update Guide

GENERAL INFORMATION

UEM Console 1912 (File Version 2.0.x) with new Service Bus Architecture 

The UEM Console 1909 (File Verison 1.x) will still be available for customers with an older Solution Builder version but will not be developed further.  With release 1912 the new UEM Console 2.0 is available.  

The UEM Console 2.0 requires the UEM mode of the Software Asset Management 9.1.3.  This brings together computers and mobile devices to form a unified object type in the Solution Builder platform.  In addition, a new communication architecture based on a service bus is introduced.  This allows a more efficient and faster communication between the UEM Console, Empirum and Silverback.  The goal is that the entire communication between the UEM product parts will take place over it in order to also enable hybrid installations, (e.g. Empirum local, Silverback and Solution Builder in the Cloud). 

Azure Service Bus for Cloud or RabbitMQ for on premise installations are currently supported as Service Bus.  Read the documentation for the respective installation or configuration in the corresponding download. 

On Empirum a package with variables is imported and executed on the master server.  This establishes the connection to the service bus.  In the UEM Console there is a corresponding configuration area under Settings. Silverback will be connected soon.

 

The installation and the update are not different in the execution and are therefore not listed separately.
