HP SM 7.11 to 9.30 Upgrade
I'm going to upgrade my SM 7.11 to SM 9.30.
SM 7.11 is running in Windows server 2k3 and database on another Oracle 10g Server.
In the Compatibility Matrix of SM 9.30. It support only Window Server 2k8 and Oracle 11g.
Do I really have to upgrade my Oracle database and my windows server before upgrade HP SM or just upgrade SM application only?
Upgrade database from Oracle 10g to 11g is difficult and complicated to me, but I must upgrade SM 7.11 to 9.30 😞
Because I tested upgrade in Windows server 2k3 and Oracle 10g in my Virtual Machine, everything seems to be OK.
I tested install new SM 9.30 in windows server 2k3 and Oracle 10g (Compatibility Matrix from HP says it doesn't support this environment) and everything seems to be OK.
Please give me some advices do I really have to upgrade windows server and Oracle database?
Thanks and Regards.
You may upgrade your SM 7.11 to 9.30 with Win2K3 and Oracle 10g database. Compatibility matrix lists most recommended OS/DB/Appliction servers, but not all.
If SM 9.30 new install with win2K3 and Oracle10g works fine, then SM Applicaiton upgrade is also supported in that env. But pls make sure you back up your Oracle10G database before the upgrade in case the roll back due to any blocked issues.
