Hi,

as i read, upgrading from 7.5 to 8.0 SP2 is supported, is upgrade from 7.5 (sp4) to 8.0 SP3 also possible.
If it is, then is there other details to consider beside those listed on sheet https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/sites/default/files/Upgrading%20EV2007%20to%20EV80.xls

Thanks,

Kristjan

Hello Kristjan

This is possible.
We went from 75sp2 to 80sp2 without problems.

ps. I updated the sheet a few minutes ago. Note the first tab called prep-1 to make sure you place EV -tasks in report-mode.

Are you using DA? If yes then you will need to have a two step approach to the DA upgrade.

With DA you need to Upgrade to EV8SP1 then to SP2 or SP3 because SP2 and I assume SP3 has the same issue of not creating one table which is necessary for DA to work. EV8.0 or SP1 both create the table so you need a two step to do a DA upgrade

 Just one more note. Why not wait until SP3 is released. It is scheduled for release next week Nov 4th.

Why go to SP2 when you can go directly to SP3
