upgrade our Control-M version to 7. ASAP

abhi saxena

Hi Team,

Hope you guys doing good.

We are planning to upgrade our Control-M version to 7. ASAP.( current version -6.3 )

So in order to upgrade Control-M, Here I would like to test/know some points before.

I would like to take advantage of thisto  install/test the latest release of Control M (release 7) on the development server, , and create a project plan for the implementation. This will accomplish a few things, first it will verify all the procedures and changes needed to successfully upgrade to the new release, second this will give me more exposure/experience with UNIX to help build your technical knowledge and finally it help me establish partnerships with the Oracle DBA’s which is key for future activities.

after product download from where i can start..the first step..

Just FYI-- on the machine where i want to insttal this new version..there is already insttaled control-m version 6.3 using oracle database.. and i dont want to remove that one. want to test new one simoultenously..

Please help..

    There's a program within BMC called the Amigo program.  If you call support and ask for an Amigo for your upgrade, they will set you up with a person who can help you plan your upgrade path. I think it sounds like you should do this as your first step.

    Thanks laurie,

     

    I know this Amigo program..

     

    But I've to do it by own on my Test server and test few jobs on this new version.

     

    So that we can easily finalize whether we go on new version or not.

    My advice:

     

    1)  Setup a virtual machine - or ask your VM guys for one.  Don't try to install 7.0 on top of 6.3. 

     

    2) Install the software ( you can put all the components on that one VM ) and then use it as your sandbox.

     

    3) Export data (you can do this with the system up) from 6.3 and go through the conversion process and use that as "test" data in the 7.0 environment.  You can even do subsets of data if you have a particularly big environment.

     

    4)  Based on your comfort level there then begin your upgrade plans.

     

     

    I can't stress the fact enough to always have a sandbox.  Development should be for development -- not for trying to test out new versions of the software on :-)

    You have to install a patch on your Solaris 10 system, patch 119963 to be precise. Ask your system administrator to perform this action.

     

    If you want to check which version you have, you can issue the following command:

     

    $ showrev -p | grep 119963

     

    The other messages can be ignored.
