Update schema during upgrades.

Update schema during upgrades.

During an upgrade, it says that I may have to make changed to update the schema.

During an upgrade, the schema usually requires updating to add new attributes for webNetwork.

If you use eDirectory there is typically nothing else that has to be done.  But for Microsoft Active Directory you may have some additional steps.

First, you need to know what server in your environment is the schema master.  If you do not know what server this is, type  dsquery server -hasfsmo schema  from a cmd prompt on a domain controller.
Go to the 8090 management console of the Stoneware webNetwork server and click on Directory Services.  Check and take note of the value for DNS Name/Ip Address.  If this is not the address for the schema master
server then change it to the address for the schema master.  Also, check and take note of the Admin Account used.  If this account is not part of the Schema Admin group then make the appropriate changes.
Click Save and then shut down webNetwork.  Start webNetwork backup (it is recommended that you start it in a cmd/terminal window so you can see the progress) once it is back up go back to the 8090 management console and click on directory services.  Click on Update Schema to apply any additional updates.  When done, you can change the DNS Name/IP Address back to it previous value and undo any changes you had to make to the Admin Account.

If there are problems updating the schema, verify the Admin Account has the ability to update the schema and that the schema server allows updates via LDAP. By default, this is turned off.
