    Hi anilgupta64,

     

    To upgrade to the latest Spectrum 10, you need to upgrade to  9.2.2 (also known as H08) or any 9.2.3 hotfix and above firstly, and then you can install 9.4.0 , then install 10.0.

    Hello,

     

    Ensure that it is mandate that you would need to have Windows 2008 - minimum.

     

    Windows 2003 is not supported from Spectrum 9.4

     

    Cheers!

    Lakshmi.

    Hello Anil,

     

    please have a look to the CA Spectrum Installation Guides - which will cover most of your questions already. Also I would encourage you to test your upgrade procedure by a new test-install / lab-environment. You can do so by using the CA Spectrum Online-Backup files - to then install i.e. a new CA Spectrum R9.3 installation. For this check the manuals explaining:

     

    Chapter 1 - System Requirements

    Chapter 2 - Prerequisites

    Chapter 3 - Upgrading CA Spectrum -- here check for dbsavefile.SSdb and the procedure

     

    Ahead of this - you need to know your current installation infrastructure (like - having a distributed Spectrum installation / having customization like Event-, Alarm-customizations / having imported additional MIB and mapped/created custom attributes and watches). Finally - the upgrade affects the Java Runtime Environment at workstation level too and the workstations java install requires update too.

     

    I would suggest to engage CA Services in case of upgrade for a big production, distrubuted and customized CA Spectrum installation. Also you may find additional education sessions for this.

    But - as said - first I would like to point to the CA Spectrum Installation Guide .. this truly covers most of all aspects.

     

    Kind regards, Joerg
