Upgrade path from StarTeam 4.1 server on Windows NT to StarTeam 2005 server on Windows 2003 server.


Answer/Solution:

To upgrade from 4.1 to 2005, the recommended path that needs to be followed would be as follows:
4.1 --> 4.2 SP3 --> 5.3 SP1 patch #17 --> 6.0.079 Patch #11 or 2005/7.0.133 Patch #11.

Upgrade to 5.3 SP1 patch #17 is necessary since this is a critical upgrade patch. Patches numbered 11 are also critical for 6.0 and 2005.

The link to download and install 4.2 SP3 is listed below.

The link to download and install 5.3 SP1 is listed below.

You can download and install StarTeam server 6.0 and 2005 by going to the link given below.

The 5.3 SP1 Patch 17, the 6.0.079 Patch 11, and the 7.0.133 Patch 11 can be obtained by logging on to the http://support.borland.com and then, navigating to Downloads --> StarTeam --> Patches.


Switch to Windows 2003 after upgrading to 6.0.079 patch #11.
5.3 SP1 is especially recommended as a step when there are foreign character sets that need to be converted with the UTF8 utility.

Before upgrading, a complete backup of your StarTeam server configuration needs to be taken. This must include the database, entire repository, and starbaseserver.ini file.
