Important considerations when upgrading to CaliberRM 2006


Prior to upgrading from CaliberRM 2005 R2 (8.x) to CaliberRM 2006 (9.0), your organization should consider your ability to upgrade your desktop clients at the same time as the CaliberRM Server.

The CaliberRM 2006 Server is backwards-compatible with the Caliber 2005 R2 (8.0) and Caliber 2005 R2 SP1 (8.1) desktop clients. However, as noted in the CaliberRM 2006 Installation Guide not all functionality is available when using an older CaliberRM Client to access CaliberRM 2006 Server. Additionally, only CaliberRM Administrator 2006 (previously known as "CaliberRM Framework Administrator") can be used to administer a CaliberRM 2006 Server.

Due to significant changes in the Traceability feature in CaliberRM 2006, you must upgrade to the CaliberRM 2006 Client release in order to modify Requirement Traces. CaliberRM 2005 R2 Clients will not be able to set or modify Requirement Traces on a CaliberRM 2006 Server.

If managing Traceability is an important requirement for your users, you should plan to upgrade the Clients alongside your CaliberRM Server upgrade.

Please note that CaliberRM 2006 Clients cannot connect to CaliberRM Server releases prior to 2006. Additionally, Borland does not support installing multiple versions of the CaliberRM "Win32" Client software on one machine.
