After the DRA 8.7 upgrade to SP2 if Aegis is integrated with DRA, Aegis will need to be reconfigured by following the steps set forth below.


These steps are required if you want to launch an Aegis workflow from inside a DRA trigger or web page. Aegis connecting with the DRA (adapter) should not be impacted with the SP2 upgrade.


Steps 1 thru 4 are performed on each DRA server and step 5 is only done on the Primary DRA server and will replicate to all Secondary DRA servers.

*-Browse to the DRA directory on the primary

2. Run 32 bit cmd shell typically located atC:\Windows\SysWOW64 and change directory to where DRA is installed (c:\program file (x86)\netiq\dra).


*-Run the command


regsvr32 DraWcAegisUtility.dll


3. Run the command below in the 32 bit shell to register with .net 4


C:\Program Files (x86)\NetIQ\DRA>c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\RegAsm.exe NetIQ.DRA.Interop.Aegis.dll
