Upgrading Alfresco Office Services from a previous version of Alfresco

AOS replaces the Microsoft SharePoint Protocol Support that was available in previous versions of Alfresco. Use this information to upgrade from Microsoft SharePoint Protocol Support, or from a previous version of AOS.
  1. Upgrade Alfresco, as described in Upgrading Alfresco.

    Note: If you are not using the Alfresco setup wizard, it is very important that you install the alfresco-aos-module-1.1.6.amp, which deploys the _vti_bin.war file. See Installing an AMP file for installing an AMP file.
  2. Launch Alfresco Share.

    Test that you can edit your Microsoft Office documents by using the Edit in Microsoft Office action on any Office document in Alfresco Share.

  3. Alternatively, open a Microsoft Office application (for example, Word) and select the File tab and Open. Enter the Alfresco server address in the File name field in the format: http://servername:portnumber/alfresco/aos and browse to a folder to edit an Office document.

    Any version history from the previous version of Alfresco will not be available in Microsoft Office, but is available in Alfresco Share.
