In certain situations regarding Linux-based connectors and the embedded connector, when you upgrade from VMware Identity Manager 3.3.1 or 3.3.2 directly to 3.3.4, you have the option of migrating your connectors to external Windows connectors.
- Active Directory over Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA)
- Kerberos authentication adapter
If you upgraded from 3.3.1 or 3.3.2 to 3.3.3, you were required to migrate existing IWA directories from the embedded connector to an external Windows connector and you were required to migrate information from existing external Linux connectors to external Windows connectors. If you are now upgrading from 3.3.3 to 3.3.4, migrating connector information to external Windows connectors does not apply.
To migrate an embedded connector or external Linux connector, you require a Windows server on which to install the new, external Windows connector.
You perform connector migration after upgrading the VMware Identity Manager service to 3.3.4.
