HPE Content Manager upgrade difficulty level?

Hi. 

Is HPE Content Manager version 9 of TRIM?

I know its early days, but does anyone know how much of a leap it is to Content Manager?

Our IT branch is asking about upgrading from 8.20 already.  They want to guarantee Win10 & Office 2016 compatibility.  We need to decide between RM8.3 vs the next major release.

Has the deployment methodology changed? 

Will a HPCM upgrade be noticeably more difficult than an upgrade to RM8.3?

Also, it would be interesting to know if the patching mechanism is working.  If we go to v9.0 we'd need to plan for a possible upgrade to v9.1 not long after.

Re: HPE Content Manager upgrade difficulty level?

Hi Steve

You'll find the installation process to be very similar to the processes you've followed in the past. The only real difference is that if you use Setup.exe to install the product, you need to ensure all MSIs for the modules you want to install are in the same folder that Setup is run from (or just run it from the ISO).

Patching is still 'on the cards' for future releases, but I'm unable to advise when it will be available. For an upgrade from "TRIM"/"Records Manager" to HPE Content Manager 9.0, it's a full upgrade process.

I hope this of some help.

Cheers

Helen 🙂

Thanks for the info Helen. We do SCCM deployments so we don't use the setup exe. It looks like not much will need to change then?

Cheers
