Upgrade Procedure

To upgrade an existing installation of the Microsoft Office 365 Application, perform the following steps:

Upgrading Office 365 Gateway Application

1    Identify the required Office 365 Gateway Application:
      Important: A single PA installation may use several Office 365 Gateway Applications on an Office 365 Gateway Host. So, you must identify and upgrade each Office 365 Gateway Application separately.
a    Log in to PA Provider Control Panel, go to Top > Service Director > Application Manager > Applications.
b    Click on the name of the required Office 365 Application, and then select the Resource Types tab.
c    Click on the name of the required 'Office 365 Application' Resource Type.
d    Select the Activation Parameters tab, and then select the Global settings subtab.
e    See the value of the URL for MOSI Connector global setting. It is structured in the following way: https://<Office365GatewayHostName>/<Office365GatewayApplicationName>/HTTPEndpoint.aspx.
f    Write down the values of the Office365GatewayHostName and Office365GatewayApplicationName parameters.
g    Obtain the IP address to which the Office365GatewayHostName is resolved via DNS.
2    Log on to the required Office 365 Gateway Host as Administrator via RDP.
3    Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
4    Select the site, which has the IP address obtained at step 1. Write down the name and IP address of the site.
5    Select the application, which has the name obtained at step 1.
6    Validate that the selected application is the required Office 365 Gateway Application:
a    Right-click the application item and click the Explore menu item in the context menu.
b    Verify that the SubscriptionEvents.svc file is listed among others in the displayed application root directory.
      Important: If there is no the SubscriptionEvents.svc file, contact Parallels support.
7    Upgrade the required Office 365 Gateway Application:
a    Put the Microsoft Office 365 Application Package on the Office 365 Gateway Host.
b    Extract the Web.zip file from the Microsoft Office 365 Application Package.
c    Unpack the Web.zip file.
d    Start the Windows PowerShell Console and go to the directory where the content of the Web.zip file is placed.
e    Execute the setup.ps1 -SiteName <Office 365 Gateway site name> –IPAddress <IP address of the Office 365 Gateway site> -GatewayAppName <Office 365 Gateway Application name> command.
      Note: You may use the -MOSIBaseURL, -MOSIBillingID, -MOSIMxRecordType, -MOSIClientCertSubject options to override the appropriate MOSI settings of the installed Office 365 Gateway and Office 365 Callbacks-Dispatcher Applications.
