So...my 8.03 version is currently on a 2003 box and I am upgrading to a 2008 VM. Do you know if I have to install my 8.03 on my 2008 VM box for a baseline and then upgrade to 9.10 or can I do a fresh install of 9.10 on my 2008 VM and migrate my data from my 8.03 version box?
Your last statment kinda confused me....you previous told me I need to go from 8.03-9.10 and then to 9.20 but you last post suggest states "The best way to go is to upgrade your 8.03 to 9.2".....did you mean 9.1???
Please excuse my stupidity but I am every elementary when it comes to software!!!
Randall...you stated that there have been changes to the database....so if I upgrade from 8.03 to 9.10, I need to upgrade my Oracle db as well from 10 to 11g. How do I migrate my data off the old db and on to my new db??
My apologizes again for my lack of knowledge. I was not the original person who installed the application and I was kinda thrown into this position.
I mean there have been changes on the PPM database structure, like some fields added to the tables and things like that. That is why i recommed you to upgrade your PPM 8.03 to 9.1 and then to 9.2, because each one of them, have some of this changes and they need to be implemented by the upgrade scripts.
If you do a fresh install of 9.2 and refresh your data with the one on 8.03 you will get some data corruptions on your database.
you have to review the compability matrix guides in order to see if your database versions are supported on the version you want to install.
Best regards, Randall
