Issue/Introduction


This article will help in understanding the output of running the 'dxupgradecheck.exe' tool, with the '-deprecated' switch.
Running the following command will display the list of deprecated commands for all DSAs on the server:
dxupgradecheck.exe -deprecated

Cause

Ran the following command after upgrading Directory: 
C:\Program Files\CA\Directory\dxserver\bin>dxupgradecheck.exe -deprecated

[democorp-A] 'set dynamic-access-control = false;' C:\Program Files\CA\Directory\dxserver\config\access\democorp-A.dxc
[democorp-B] 'set dynamic-access-control = false;' C:\Program Files\CA\Directory\dxserver\config\access\democorp-B.dxc
Error: 'min-auth'/'authentication' is deprecated and not supported. Using minimum auth-levels as min-auth.

Environment

Release : 12.6 and 14.x
Component : CA Directory

Resolution

Running the command checks and reports on any deprecated parameters that can be removed.  Since it may have been left out there from an earlier version of the product.
In the above example the 'set dynamic-access-control = true | false;' has been deprecated, and can remove it from the config files.
Not removing it is OK. However, the parameter will not function if set to 'True'.

Also the "set min-auth' has been deprecated and can be removed from the C:\Program Files\CA\Directory\dxserver\config\settings\democorp.dxc file.
