Upgrade ALM 12.01 (Patch 5) to 12.6

Hi there,

Currently we are running ALM 12.01 (patch 5) and because we need to upgrade the database (currently sql server 2012 server we alst need to upgrade to a higher ALM version.

Is it possible to directly migrate from  12.01 to 12.6? 

https://admhelp.microfocus.com/alm/specs/alm-qc-system-requirements.htm  Doesn't mention a minimal patch for 12.6, so I think it should be possible, but I'd like it confirmed.

For an official confirmation please open a Micro Focus support case.

My personal recommendation is to install the latest patches on 12.01 and then migrate to 12.60.

It should be supported, normally for this kind of upgrade, it's better to setup a staging server (for testing purpose) and try the upgrade process. In addition, 12.01 and 12.60 recommanded and supported environment is changed, please refer to 12.60 system requirement for the supported environment firstly.

Confirming we made it from 12.01.2 to 12.55.2 OK.

One of the more recent patches to 12.55 fixed the project upgrade process so you should be fine on 12.60
