     I only see in-place upgrade documentation now. Customer wants to upgrade while moving to new VMs. How can they do that?

    Hi Norm,

    You can use the same method as before which is

    1. build your new environment with the same domain name and security (admin pw)
    2. then make sure the new primary hub and ump etc are visible in AC/IM (might need tunnels or name services)
    3. then point your queues at the new primary
    4. upgrade old tier 2 hubs (or replace)

    cheers

    Hi Rowan,

     

    How can the existing 8.51 large database be used in this scenario? The goal is to move from SQL2014 to SQL2016.

     

    Thanks.

    Norm.

    Ah, right, I was assuming you wanted a new database as well.

    1. You will need to build a new 8.5.1 primary hub on the new VM with a dummy database on the new SQL2016.
    2. Stop the old primary hub
    3. Take a backup of the database on 2014, restore to 2016 (or the dba's can move the database)
    4. Point the new hub to the 2016 version of the database when online
    5. Check all is working, with UMP etc
    6. Divert all the tier 2 hub queues to the new hub
    7. Check QOS are processed and alarms are in the new NAS.
    8. Wait for a day or so to check all good
    9. Then perform an in place upgrade to 9.02

     

    You could do the upgrade to 9.02 first if you want.

    Cheers

    Looks like one other item before step 1 would be to manually create the CA_UIM database in SQL2016, then set the database compatibility mode to SQL2014 for UIM 8.51. Does that sound correct?

    I think that you need to run UIM installer to build new UIM database schema.
