Upgrade DP and Windows server, which must be first ?

Hi all,

I don't find information about in the official documentation that I found. I need to upgrade DP (9 to 10) and Windows Server (2008 to 2012). I wish to know what is better, to upgrade first Windows server and after DP or inverse ?

Thank you for your answer.

Hi,

As you know backup DP for all to roll-back.

If DP installed with default location

DP server down (omnisv -stop)

Copy all for  C:\Program Files\omniBack  and C:\ProgramData\OmniBack

Then,

If you meet a problem, You can roll back to 9. (Remove 10 --> Install 9 --> DP Down --> Copy back for this - folders --> DP start)

Have a niceday

Hello Genome,

Since there is no direct upgrade path for Windows you will most likely prepare a new server first, migrate the DP 9.x to the new system according to the steps in Installation.pdf found in the Docs folder and perform an upgrade there.

If you're not on 10.x yet, wait for 10.03 to become available which resolves some upgrade related issues.
