is upgrade to 5.10 possible without DR password

Jump to solution
I've been asked to upgrade our ePO server from 5.9.1 to 5.10. I'm not sure I can locate the ePO DR password. Will this derail the upgrade? Besides the upgrade, what is the risk for not having the DR password?

Hello @User67091518 

Thanks for your post.

Please go to your ePO 5.9.1 Server Settings and then click on Disaster Recovery.

After that update your Disaster Recovery Passphrase and make a not of that.

Once done please have a ePO and ePO DB backup with the help of the KB66616.

Once the backup is completed please proceed with the upgrade.

Also if there is NO DR PASSPHRASE your ePO upgrade will get failed.

Hope this will help.

Any reason you don't want passphrase features. It's included with some Purpose.

If you forget then we can reset it #:
