What's New for VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5

Support of FIPS Mode
VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5 can perform cryptographic operations using FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 compliant algorithms. You can enable the use of these algorithms by performing a fresh installation of VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5 in FIPS mode. VMware Identity Manager does not support upgrading from a non-FIPS installation to a FIPS installation. When VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5  is deployed in FIPS mode, the appliance cannot be changed to the standard deployment mode. For installation in FIPS mode, see Perform a Fresh Installation of VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5 in FIPS Mode in the VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5 Upgrade Guide.

TCP/UDP for Syslog Connection
Now you can choose between Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) for connection to Syslog servers. To use TCP, TLS has to be enabled for data encryption.  For settings, see Configure a Syslog Service for VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5.

Important functionality fixes
•    RabbitMQ cluster is fixed by modifying the ownership of rabbitmq folders.
•    Upgrade issues solved for Kerberos-SSO.
•    Post upgrade, port connectivity is resolved and the System Diagnostics is again showing as green.

Upgrading to VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5

Note:

  • To access the Appliance Settings page in the Workspace ONE Access console, make sure that you are assigned the Operator role for the default tenant.

    • Tenant admins of non-default tenants are not authorized to configure SMTP settings.
  • Migrate VMware vRealize Automation 7.5 or 7.6 Business Groups to vRealize Version 8.4   

You can upgrade VMware Identity Manager from version 3.3.2, 3.3.3, or 3.3.4 directly to 3.3.5. To upgrade from earlier versions, upgrade to 3.3.1 first, then upgrade 3.3.1 to 3.3.4 and then to 3.3.5.

To upgrade to VMware Identity Manager 3.3.5, see Upgrading VMware Identity Manager to 3.3.5 on the VMware Workspace ONE Access Documentation center. During the upgrade, all services are stopped, so if only one connector is configured plan the upgrade with the expected downtime in mind.
