Planning to Upgrade PC 12.20 - PC 12.52 next month!
We are planning to upgrade PC 12.20 to PC 12.52 next month. We have total 9 VM, 1 ALM, 1 DB, 2 PC with LB, and 5 Hosts each (DP, C, LG). We have ALM PC architecture completely independent from ALM QC so we can avoid the dependency while upgrade it.
I understand that I don’t need a new license key since I will upgrade it from ALM PC 12.20.
Q: Do we need to uninstall the existing version HP ALM PC 12.20 before installing the HP ALM PC 12.52?
If yes, do we need to uninstall ALM, PC, Host all S/w from all 9 VMs?
Or is there any other easy way out?
That's right. You will need to fully uninstall the old version on all the machines before installing the new one. This applies to ALM Server, PC Server, PC Hosts and any standalone components as well.
Also need to backup your projects before upgrading. You should review the upgrade best practices guide thoroughly before proceeding with upgrade
If you find that this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution.
We are in the same situation of upgrading shortly. I would like to know if/how you got hold of the installation files for PC 12.52.
Also note that MS SQL server 2008 R2 is not supported any longer for ALM 12.5
Please note that the software version is 12.50, there is not such thing as 12.52.
You will need to install 12.50 and then install available patches, if such are available.
