Release date: 2019-09-06
Always backup the Zervicepoint database before upgrading! If you experience an installation failure you must restore the database before continuing.
This release contains no changes in Provisioning System or Client Web Service.
ZervicePoint PowerShell Management
This release contains no changes in the PowerShell Management module.
Install.cmd file no longer required
This release includes a completely new installer. This means that you no longer need to use the old Install.cmd file. The installer is however compatible with install.cmd should you wish to continue using it. If so, always use the file included in the latest release.
There is a new software requirement. .NET Framework 4.6 or above is required. Please update accordingly before upgrading to this Zervicepoint version. It is needed because we have started to support SQL server 2017. Note: .NET 4.6 might cause unpatched Service Bus 1.1 for Windows server to become unresponsive

New installation experience
The old installer has been replaced by a completely new installation experience. Here are some of the highlights of the new installer:
- Full user interface - no need for a cmd file to launch it (although it still supports install.cmd)
- When upgrading from an earlier version, the installer gets all settings from already installed features
- When reinstalling, the installer remembers the settings from the previous installation
- No more passwords in clear text in the installation log files
Changes since version 1.22.2284:
- Improved website certificate selection
- The original dropdown box is still there, but we've added a "select certificate" link that brings up a dialog containing SubjectName, FriendlyName, Thumbprint and ExpirationDate of all certificates. You can double-click a certificate to see even more details.
- Your settings are no longer overwritten
- The installer now merges configuration files (exe.config and providers.xml) from the install packages with the contents of your existing files to ensure no settings are lost. Please note that critical settings are still managed by the installer.
- Eventlog options
- We have added a new page - Eventlog options - where you can set the maximum size, overflow behavior and minimum retention days for the Zervicepoint eventlog. No need to create event sources and set maximum size manually any more.
- SQL connectivity and account validation
- The installer now automatically checks SQL connectivity, application pool account and service accounts to ensure you don't make any mistakes when entering database server/instance or usernames/passwords.
- Minor changes
- The installer now remembers the settings from last installation even if you uninstall and reinstall.
- Settings are now hidden if they have already been displayed on a previous page.
- Improved the progress page (progress items, progress bar).
- Direct navigation by clicking page name in left pane.
- Inspect and/or change bundle variable values before installing, and generate command lines for automation.
- Fixed an issue where installation wouldn't roll back in case of an error.
- Fixed an issue where the ZPAPISTSSERVICELOCATION environment variable would get the wrong value.
- Fixed issue with IS_CENTRAL being set to "0" instead of "false" for provisioning inventory service.
- Fixed issue where adding and/or removing components didn't work.
With the new installer we also introduce the Zervicepoint maintenance web. Again. (wink) You can read about it here:
