Order of upgrade for DA 10.0.4?

Just reading Upgrade instructions for 10.0.4. On page 34 it states;

 Order of upgrade in an environment with Compliance

Accelerator or Discovery Accelerator

If the Enterprise Vault environment that you are upgrading includes Compliance

Accelerator or Discovery Accelerator, the Accelerator version must be upgraded

to 10.0.4 or later. The Accelerator version can be up to one major version higher

than Enterprise Vault, but it must not be lower than the version of Enterprise

Vault.

See the Enterprise Vault Compatibility Charts at

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH38537.

You must upgrade the Accelerator product before you upgrade Enterprise Vault.

Perform the upgrades in the following order:

  •  Upgrade the Accelerator product.
  •  Then upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Accelerator server.
  •  Finally, upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Enterprise Vault server.

This is a change from previous upgrades, where you had to upgrade EV first, then EV components on DA server and then DA itself. Can anyone confirm? Anyone did DA 10.0.4 upgrade yet?

Hi Mike, No. This is not for

Hi Mike,

No. This is not for only 10.0.4. 

Starting with CA and/or DA 8.0 SP3, the version of CA or DA must be greater than or equal to the installed version of EV. For example, if EV 8.0 SP4 is installed, CA and/or DA must also be at the 8.0 SP4 or greater release.
 
But still we observed some customers are upgrading there EV first and then they go for DA / CA upgrade and those DA / CA upgrade fails. After that need to uninstall DA / CA and then install directly new installation and configure new DA environment. 
Hence it is require to upgrade in following order : 
 

Perform the upgrades in the following order:

  •  Upgrade the Accelerator product.
  •  Then upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Accelerator server.
  •  Finally, upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Enterprise Vault server.

Hi Mike, The Upgrade of DA /

Hi Mike,

The Upgrade of DA / CA in EV environment has same order as describe above.:

Perform the upgrades in the following order:

  •  Upgrade the Accelerator product.
  •  Then upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Accelerator server.
  •  Finally, upgrade Enterprise Vault on the Enterprise Vault server.

The DA Version should be and always equal or higher than current version of EV.

 

If you first upgrade EV and then upgrade EV on Accelerator Server and then try to upgrade DA, it will fail at the time of DA Configuration.
