We upgraded EV from 7.5 SP5 to 8.0 SP5. During this, found Discovery Accelerator is not supported for 7.5 SP5 to 8.0 SP5. Hence tried reinstalling DA but of no use. Getting "The instance 'EVBADiscovery' is currently unavailable; an administrator must upgrade it before clients can connect" while trying to connect from Discovery Accelerator client.
How can we over come this? Please help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It is as it is since long time, say many months;
|Version:||7.5 revision 80|
Upgradation happened some 6 months back. Since then we havent used DA.
Tony Sterling says here http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/discovery-accelerator-web-page-not-opening to my same problem which was reported then that to
Delete the DA Databases from SQL
But I am seeing EVConfiguration DB as well as EVDiscovery DB for my Discovery Accelerator installation.
Since I am not sure what exactly EVConfiguration DB is used apart from my Discovery Accelerator, how can I make sure of this? Is whether EVConfiguration DB is only and exclusively used by Discovery Accelerator and also since I have CA also exist along with DA in my environment, is there any possibility EVConfiguration is holding things of other EV components?
I made a wrong comment.
CA is not colocated with DA. CA was in other physical server, which is currently crashed and not online.
We had UCE in the same box where DA was installed, which we uninstalled since we were not using.
Now we only only DA installed and no other EV components in the box.
You need to actually run the upgrade process on the databases. Thes steps are for 9 but will work for 8 I believe.
Follow the steps below to upgrade each customer database:
If you are upgrading to Discovery Accelerator 9.0 from Discovery Accelerator 2007 SP6, specify at least one database location for the analytics table file groups and indexes. You can use the default database location if you do not intend to use the analytics feature with this customer.
The database locations must reside on the SQL server, and you must use local paths to refer to them. For example, do not use UNC paths to refer to database locations. The Accelerator Manager Web site does not verify that the specified locations exist. You must ensure that the paths are valid.
Had followed all the steps you mentioned above, except adding Database Locations for Analytics. After adding so upgrade started and completed successfully. Found particular this thing is missing everywhere.
Anyways, Symantec connect and knowledge base is great enough to handle its applications and run the show.
Thank you all for the kind replies and guidance.
Thank you, both.
If in the article http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH165459 it is mentioned about database locations for analytics should be present for upgrading the database would make it complete, as far as my condition is concerned.
Rahul, marking your reply as solution as you mentioned it first.
