Any 8.0 adopters out there?

Just wondering if anyone else is currently testing 8.0 and how you're finding it...?

We're stuck with an unidentified database issue during upgrade of our Test environment. :(

Re: Any 8.0 adopters out there?

Hi Erick,

I would like to give it a shot but wondering where to download the upgrade patch. I am in 7.5 SP 4.

I have SUM login credentials as well.

Thanks

SUM is the right place. Go to SUM > Download Updates, then select HP PPM 8.0

I dont see anything there? Do I need to have special Permissions for seeing 8.0?

You probably want to talk to HP about that. Your linked SAID needs to have PPM registered on it.

Re: Any 8.0 adopters out there?

hey Erik,

what is the exact problem you are facing? maybe I can help.

I performed a test upgrade from 7.5 SP4 to 8.0 and I run into a biiiiiiig problem - luckily i managed to solve it - related to custom scoring criteria.

So: let me know if I can help.

Cheers

Erik,

can you try locating the log file?

the only thing that the specified script is doing is compiling the invalid objects in the ppm schema. It is calling an Oracle utility, and, also given the error you faced, maybe there is a problem with the database - check if the Oracle logs mentioned anything at the same time.

also, try to run the DBMS_UTILITY.compile_schema yourself from sqlplus

Hi Eric,

We have upgraded one test environment to 8 SP1 from 7.1 SP8. We ran into some timesheet-sync problems (old issue). But what we are struggling with, is that any Step source that contained updates to budget entities, simply will not open when selecting edit stepsource in the Workflow.

Johannes,

We did finally get a dev environment up and running, by using another database server. I see the same workflow step source issue there. Have you contacted support on this?

Hi Eric,

Yes we did, we got a script that recalculated some sequences for us. That solved the problem.

Cheers,

Johannes
