Upgrading ALM and Schemas

Jump to solution

Hi there

 

I need some help/advice regarding the Upgrade of ALM 11 to 11.52 or 12 with regards to the copying of the DB Schemas and also making the repository path a network path. I have read the manual and not too much info is given regarding this.

 

We want to upgrade on the same box as well, so we are not moving to a new box/hardware. What would be best practice in this case and how would i make the repository path a network path? Would I simply share it using the windows function?

 

Many thanks

 

Kind Regards

It is recommended to do an upgrade on a different box as you have an ALM 11 which is a working backup during the entire upgrade.

 

While upgrading, its recommended to use "Upgrade a copy of existing schema". And with respect to repository path, map a network drive on the application server machine and use that as repository path.

 

Make sure the user with which you are installing ALM does have full control (read/write) on the network drive

Clicking the "Kudos star" to the left is a great way to say thanks!
