Ghost Solution Suite


Existing GSS Environment:

  • Have version 3.3 RU1
  • Have it running on 2012 r2 server

Need to upgrade the OS to Windows 2019 and do in place upgrade of GSS to RU10

  • Tried to perform OS upgrade but received errors:
    • "OS not supported and needed to uninstall"
    •  Ghost Standard tools- Went into the control panel and checked:
      • has a few versions in there from 2019 and had 3 instances installed on top
      • eleted old one and refreshed install and now only has 1 problem now
    • "Altiris deployment datastore and needs to be removed" in order to install 2019
    • Now only has 1 instance on programs and features

Needs guidance on next steps to perform successful in-place upgrade and migration to new 2019 server
