Lab Manager Concerns during upgrade

I have read the release notes and even opened a case but I still have some concerns about the correct method to update lab manager after an upgrade.

We have a test environment. It is v12.57 and we want to upgrade to 12.60.

I took a back up of the default-lab_project_db & also a back up of the lab_project repository.

Then I did the overall ALM upgrade choosing the option: "upgrade a copy of existing schema"

The ALM upgrade was fine with no errors.

So now I see I have a new site admin schema as well as a new lab_project schema (default_lab_project_db0)

When I look in Site Admin and check the Lab Management tab I can see that my Lab_Project is deactivated. I can see that its database is called default_lab_project_db0 and I can see it has a new repository path.

As expected, when I check Lab Management it opens fine but it is empty.


My question is simply: How do I get the content from my old lab_project into the new lab_project?

Re: Lab Manager Concerns during upgrade

So when ALM sees a db name in use it appends an integer - like you're seeing.

You have 2 options to fix this - you can do the same for both DB or different - it shouldn't matter

Option 1: Copy data from _db to _db0 - SSMS or your DBA can help with this.

Option 2: Adjust ALM to reference the _db instead of _db0

  • For lab project alter site admin db PROJECTS table.
  • For qcsiteadmin database you edit siteadmin.xml in \application\20qcbin.war\WEB-INF
