Upgrade the software

Google regularly updates the G Suite Migrate platform and node software. We recommend that you use the latest version of the software to ensure that you have the most recent G Suite Migrate features and fixes.

Important: Google does not recommend upgrading your databases after the initial installation.

Upgrade the platform and node servers

  1. Sign in to the G Suite Migrate platform and make sure no bridges or scans are running.
  2. In the task bar, right click the G Suite Migrate icon and select Stop G Suite Migrate service
  3. Open the G Suite Migrate installers page and click the links to download the updated installers.

    Note: The installers are only available to approved beta participants. (For more information on how to register for the the G Suite Migrate Beta program, see this form.)

  4. Run the installers on the platform and on each node.
  5. Verify the upgrade was successful by confirming the platform version number matches the node version. To see:
    • Platform version—In the top-right corner of the G Suite Migrate platform, the platform version is next to Help Help.
    • Node version—In the top-right corner of the G Suite Migrate platform, click Servers. The node version is listed under Version.
  6. To restart any bridges that you stopped in step 1, run a delta bridge. For details, see Get ready to go live.
Optional: Run the installers on the command line

As an alternative to running the installers manually, you can run an upgrade using the command-line interface.

To run the G Suite Migrate installers non-interactively, use all of the following command line setup parameters:

Parameter Description
/SP- Turn off prompts at the beginning of a setup.
/VERYSILENT Turn off the setup wizard and all windows during the installation process.
/SUPPRESSMSGBOXES Suppress all message boxes.
/NORESTART Prevent a system restart following a successful installation, or after an installation failure that requests a restart.

Example: Run an upgrade using the G Suite Migrate platform installer:

GSuiteMigrate_Platform_Installer_version-number.exe /SP- /VERYSILENT /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NORESTART

If you are upgrading G Suite Migrate, the installation parameters are automatically populated with values from your existing installation. If you wish to change these values, the installer supports the following custom parameters:

Parameter Description
/ClientID Your OAuth Web client ID.

The path to your service account's JSON file.

Example: C:\Downloads\Certificate.json.

Note: Enclose the path in quotation marks if it contains spaces.

/AdminEmail Your domain admin email address.

The port number of your install.

Note: Use this parameter only if you wish to override the default (5131).

/AccessKey The access key required when associating the nodes.

Note: The G Suite Migrate installers are built with a third-party product called Inno Setup. For more details on the command line parameters available, consult the documentation for Inno Setup.
