I’m investigating the issues for migrating from 6.0.1 to 6.5. From reading the install/fix docs it appears that the minimum jdk is 1.4.2 and the oracle db is 18.104.22.168 (for audit logs, TN, etc). I wanted to do a test upgrade on a sandbox but will probably have to guestimate how long this upgrade will take per server. I would also like to do this in stages, eg. first wm upgrade, then jdk, then oracle db for example.
Can anyone provide comments on this such as:
- Are these the absolute minimum versions (for jdk and oracle db)
- Any gotchas regarding required flow changes (like for maps)
- Any intermediate installs needed (eg. 6.01 to 6.1 then 6.5)
- Any issues migrating from windows to solaris box (this would be an install and migration vs. an upgrade).
I know this mostly specific to each individual client but any general help would be appreciated. I’ve got a handle on the wmdb to jdbc adapter conversion work already. If you need any more specific info please let me know.
