Important notice for customers who update to Exact Globe product update 411, Exact Synergy Enterprise product update 256 and Exact Lightweight Integration Server (ELIS)

Written by Michiel van Rooijen on . Posted in Exact Globe, Exact Synergy

This announcement applies to customers:
•updating to Exact Globe product update 411 from Exact Globe product update 409 or Exact Globe product update 410, and
•updating to Exact Synergy Enterprise product update 256 from Exact Synergy Enterprise product update 254 or Exact Synergy Enterprise product update 255, and
•using Exact Lightweight Integration Server (ELIS) as integration solution between Exact Globe and Exact Synergy Enterprise

In this product update of ELIS it has been made possible for partners of Exact to create their own solutions using ELIS. As a result of this the update procedure for ELIS is different this time. For future product updates the standard routine can be used again.

After updating Exact Globe to 411 and updating Exact Synergy Enterprise to 256, the update of ELIS has to be installed from the CAB folder of the Exact Synergy Enterprise installation. The installation routine of ELIS did not change, only the location where to install from is different for this product update only.

After ELIS has been updated, the solutions that run on ELIS (like Exact Integration) can be installed in the usual way. It is mandatory to also update the end points of Exact Globe and Exact Synergy Enterprise. Make sure that after the end points are updated, the product update version registered by the clients is updated by connecting to Exact Globe and Exact Synergy Enterprise from the client configuration screen and save the changes. Also make sure the configuration is updated to the latest version of the solution.

Due to the changes in ELIS in this product update, as of version 1.1.23.132 of ELIS it is only possible to connect to Exact Globe product update 411 and Exact Synergy Enterprise product update 256. It is not supported to connect to lower product updates of Exact Globe and Exact Synergy Enterprise with this version of ELIS.

The controlled release fase of product update 411 and 256 starts at the end of November 2015. The product updates are planned to be generally available in January 2016.

Important notice for E-WMS and ICL customers updating to Exact Globe Next product update 411

Written by Wilfred Bossenbroek on . Posted in Exact Globe

This post applies to E-WMS customers, updating to Exact Globe Next 411 (or higher).

For customers using ICL (Intercompany Logistics), only section ‘services’ below applies.

 

In product update 411 the E-WMS IIS web application has been changed:

  • The installation and presence of Exact Globe Next is no longer required for E-WMS on the IIS server
  • E-WMS ASP now uses .NET Framework 4.5, instead of .NET Framework 3.5
  • E-WMS ASP can now be configured as a 64 bit IIS process

 

This means, after updating to 411 you will have to perform following actions, before E-WMS ASP can be used:

  • the IIS ‘application pool’  needs to be configured for ‘integrated’ pipeline mode instead of ‘classic’ pipeline mode, and for .NET Framework 4.5
  • it is required to have “Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013” installed on the IIS server
  • The SQL user configured for E-WMS ASP now needs to be SQL Sysadmin or db_owner

This document provides more information on what steps to take on the IIS server.

 

Changed version check

A side effect of these changes is that the ‘software version’ check method of E-WMS has changed. In previous releases, E-WMS compared file versions of the Exact Globe Next workstation installation versus versions of files used by the E-WMS ASP web process. Since the presence of Exact Globe Next on the IIS server is no longer required, this version check method could no longer be used.

The E-WMS software version is now updated in the Exact Globe Next database. To update this version to the current installed version, an E-WMS control center has to be started first. Only after this is done, it is possible to succesfully logon to an E-WMS web session (WMSclient).

 

Services

Also the E-WMS and ICL services have been changed to verify the installed service version, versus the software version found in the database.

To update the version in the database for the ICL services, an ICL control center has to be started first after an update. This has to be done seperately in the sales- or purchase database, and in the central database.

 

WMSclient

Please note that it is also necessary to reinstall WMSclient on your hand terminals. If you have a coldboot set including WMSclient, don’t forget to replace the file WMSclient.cab with the new version.
