 2. Open file location C:\Borland\CaliberRMServer\Versant\DB and rename the existing SQMDB to SQMDB.sample.

 3. Open the location where you saved a copy of the SQMDB database from 2008SP1.

 4. Open file location C:\Borland\CaliberRMServer\Versant\DB and copy your production database folder (i.e. SQMDB from 2008SP1) to the new Caliber 11 server.
