Open-Xchange releases Public Patch Release 2012-11-27 for OXASE

As already announced, Open-Xchange will discontinue maintenance and support for Open-Xchange Advanced Server Edition (OX ASE) on November 30, 2013. Customers with a valid maintenance subscription will continue to receive software updates and technical support until that date. However we recommend that customers using OX ASE should consider migrating to “Open-Xchange Server Edition for Univention Corporate Server“ (OXSE for UCS) before that date.

The provided update is a prerequisite for the automated migration, because it adds the new „Migration“ option in the license management module.

Migration made easy

  1. Once you have filled in the form at http://knowledgebase.open-xchange.co...on-ase-en.html (which will also be sent automatically to Univention) you will recieve an individual non-binding offer from both Open-Xchange and Univention for the product combination you chose, based on your existing license.
  2. Install the update for OX ASE provided to you by Open-Xchange after November 27, 2012. This is a prerequisite for the automated migration, because it adds the new „Migration“ option in the license management module.
  3. When ordering UCS and OXSE for UCS you will get new license keys from Univention and Open-Xchange. Enter the new Open-Xchange license key in the license database http://knowledgebase.open-xchange.co...istration.html. To register the Univention Key open the Univention Management Console, click the Open-Xchange menu item on the menu bar and select "License" from the drop down. The license management module recognizes the new UCS license and then displays the „Migration“ button.
  4. Automated migration starts immediately after you press the migration button and will take a few minutes. Please do not shut down the system during that process.
