Issue/Introduction

Question:

I do not know the version of my Strong Authentication server.

1. How can I find the version from existing installation?

2. How to find the DB schema version?

 

Environment:

CA Strong Authentication(AuthMinder or WebFort) - 6.2.x or 7.x or 8.x

 

Answer:

[A] The version of Webfort is visible in $ARCOT_HOME/logs/arcotwebfortstartup.log

1. Around the beginning of the startup logs, the version information is displayed.

For WebFort 6.2.x

 - 00WFMAIN - STARTING  Arcot WebFort 6.2.7.2 (Patch)

For AuthMinder 7.x

 - 00WFMAIN - STARTING Arcot WebFort 7.1.01 (Base)

For CA Strong Authentication 8.x

 - 00WFMAIN - STARTING  CA Advanced Authentication8.1

 

2. Around the end of startup logs, all modules will be displayed like below. If any binary patches are applied, the specific module versions will be displayed here.

For example in AuthMinder 7.1.01 below logs are printed:

[B] The version information is stored in DB. You can run below query to find out the Server version and DB schema version

1. For CA Strong Authentication 8.x and AuthMinder 7.x:

Query to get server version

select CONFIGVALUESTR from ARWFCONFIG where CONFIGPARAMID='10001';

Query to get schema version

select CONFIGVALUESTR from ARWFCONFIG where CONFIGPARAMID='10002';

 

2. For WebFort 6.2.x:

select CONFIGPARAMNAME,CONFIGVALUESTR from ARWFCONFIG where CONFIGNAME='VersionInformation';
