Hi, I am planning a migration of Spectrum off Windows 2003 to Windows 2016 and to upgrade Spectrum from 126.96.36.199 to 10.4. If you have insights or advice you can offer please do so.My plan is currently as follows: Step 1 Migrate existing Spectrum 9.2 to New servers (Windows 2016) Create new Windows 2016 Servers Migrate data as per "Migrate and Upgrade on Windows" Perform installation of Spectrum 9.3 on each of Primary SpectroServer Secondary SpectroServer OneClick Server Step 2 Upgrade Fault Tolerant System using the new servers Follow procedure in "Upgrade Fault-Tolerant SpectroSERVERs and OneClick Web Servers" replacing each server with the new upgraded server Step 3 Upgrade to Spectrum 10.2 Follow the procedure in "Upgrade Fault-Tolerant SpectroSERVERs and OneClick Web Servers" using in-place upgrades Step 4 Upgrade to Spectrum 10.4 Follow the procedure in "Upgrade Fault-Tolerant SpectroSERVERs and OneClick Web Servers" using in-place upgradesOne concern I have is that it may be necessary to use Windows 2012 as an intermediary step to maintain support for spectrum.ThanksPaul
would you consider upgrading spectrum before the server upgrades?If you can do this, then you'll be able to simplify the process.
I'm guessing that you are looking at the support matrix about what you can and can't do.9.2 -> 9.49.4 -> 10.210.2 -> 10.4Once you've got a higher version, you can then save the database and then copy that to your Server 2016 systemand then load that after you've installed spectrumAlso, be aware of this issue and tidy up where requiredhttps://ca-broadcom.wolkenservicedesk.com/external/article?articleId=130360This can prevent the webclient from working correctly.Other things to consider. I have spectrum installed on a D drive and my nightly DB backups go to an E Drive.That way, C drive issues don't impact Spectrum.I'm currently on 10.3.1 from memoryThings that I noticed when doing an upgrade. Sometimes it can take a long time. Keep an eye on the logs, as sometimes, a lock file isleft open, and the installation stops waiting for it. So, just delete it and it will carry on.good luck!
