What is the upgrade path to get from my version to the StarTeam 2008?
What is the upgrade path from version x.x to 2008?
The only valid upgrade path to StarTeam 2008 starts with StarTeam 2005 R2 build 8.0.172 with at least patch 33. If you have this version of StarTeam, then you can skip the 2006 release altogether and go straight to 2008. Of course, this depends on your database version and being able to successfully convert your database to a new version of Oracle or SQL Server. Please consult with your DBA for that information.
If you are running StarTeam 2006, you will need build 251 (patch #5) in order to upgrade to 2008. The upgrade path is direct to 2008.
When referring to the StarTeam 2008 Installation Guide, you may notice that the minumum requirements for the 2008 upgrade are 2005 R2 patch 31 and 2006 patch 244. Please disregard this information. These two patches have been rolled into the patches listed above. This information supersedes the Installation guide.
For earlier versions of StarTeam, please refer to the attached document for the valid upgrade path to StarTeam 2008. Locate your exact version of StarTeam Server and then locate the upgrade path. Upgrades from versions prior to 2005 R2 will require a new support case in order to obtain the necessary software. Support will gladly assist you in this process.
