Upgrading to EV version 10.0.4 from version 9.0.2

Dear All,

We are planning to upgrade EV version 9.0.2 to 10.0.4.

Our current setup is on Windows 2K8 R2 both ev and SQL server only concern is SQL version which is MS SQL 2005.

HW is good

32 Gb RAM 2 Ghz 4 processors - EV server

8 GB RAM 2 Ghz 2 processors _ SQL server

After meeting the compatibility of EV 10.0.4

 

Can we go ahead for inplace upgrdation?

What would be the progress path?

 

Regards,

MontoN

You list looks pretty good

You list looks pretty good except you don't need to upgrade Exchange Server forms, just deploy the forms locally with the Client by setting the Desktop Policy.

You could refer to this:

Also, if you read the Upgrade_Instructions.pdf that is part of the installation Media you will have all the steps you need.

As with all upgrades you

As with all upgrades you should take a look at:

 

The Compatibility Guide

Run Deployment Scanner, and review the output

 

The Compatibility Guide says that SQL 2005 is supported for EV 10... provided you are using Standard or Enterprise and have SQL 2005 SP 3 or SP 4.

Hello MontoN, You can run SQL

Hello MontoN,

You can run SQL Server 2005 SP3/SP4 with Enterprise Vault 10.x:

Enterprise Vault Compatibility List
http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH38537 (Page 14)

Also, you can upgrade from Enterprise Vault 9.0.2 to Enterprise Vault 10.0.4:

Supported upgrade paths for Enterprise Vault (EV), Compliance Accelerator (CA), Discovery Accelerator (DA) and Discovery Collector (DC)
http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH53174

If you have CA or DA on your environment, then you need to upgrade these products first, then Enterprise Vault. Take a look at the upgrade guide:

Symantec Enterprise Vault 10.0.4 - Release Notes and Upgrade Instructions
http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC6263

I hope this helps.
