IMPORTANT – MongoDB Community Edition - PLEASE POST ON YOUR KBs AND WEB SITES FOR PARTNERS AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
All Enterprise Management Instances (including products formerly branded X3 / X3 People / Warehousing) sold on or after October 1st 2018 must use MongoDB Community Edition
As you know, our products embed a MongoDB component that can be installed either from the Sage delivery as an OEM component, or from an independent purchase / download.
MongoDB OEM Licensing terms have changed since October 1st, 2018. From that date forward, you must not use MongoDB Enterprise releases as an OEM in Enterprise Management instances. You must use MongoDB Community Edition (CE) instead.
Sage deliveries have switched to MongoDB Community Edition (CE) since September 2016 (Syracuse 9.4 delivery and all V11 and V12 releases). But you need to control your installed base and make necessary arrangements to guarantee that any instance delivered on or after October 1st 2018 has been installed using the latest setup media delivered by Sage (through ISOs or Patches) and is not using MongoDB Enterprise edition.
Those instructions do not apply to customers who have purchased their own MongoDB Enterprise licenses, they only apply to OEM installations.
You are required to control, for those customers in V9 and V11 using an OEM delivery of MongoDB:
In no case should a customer have an OEM MongoDB Enterprise Edition supplied by Sage if their EM license has been supplied after September 30, 2018.
Customers who have purchased their own MongoDB Enterprise Edition licenses can continue using them of course.
We also highly recommend you upgrade your Syracuse and MongoDB instances to the latest versions (MongoDB 3.4.16) as recommended in our patch release notes, since MongoDB 3.2 releases have been moved out of MongoDB maintenance plans.
*** How to Update MongoDB ***
MongoDB is not upgraded automatically when you upgrade Syracuse. You need to use the standalone MongoDB setup executable to upgrade your MongoDB instance. Here is how:
