CA PM 3.2
The customer wants to upgrade to CA PM 3.7.
The current version of Vertica 8.1 which comes with CA PM 3.2 is installed in /opt/CA/vertica8
Not sure why it was installed in /opt/CA/vertica8
Is there a migration to upgrade the Vertica 8 to Vertica 9 as part of the CA PM 3.7 upgrade?
Look on page 237 of the 3.7 documentation. It walks you through the intermediate steps you have to take to upgrade between versions of Vertica.
Upgrading r3.2 to r3.7 will be a multi-install process.
It may also require new hardware if new OS's are needed.
It would be best to go through a current sizing for the environment to ensure the new release can run properly.
