You can migrate from Helpdesk Solution 6.x.
Before you do this migration, consider the following:
Before you migrate, you must set up a ServiceDesk server and install ServiceDesk 7.5. You can migrate data from your Helpdesk Solution over to your ServiceDesk 7.5.
Symantec does not support an in-place same-server upgrade from Helpdesk Solution to ServiceDesk 7.5. ServiceDesk does not install over Helpdesk Solution.
Although you can install a new SQL server, it is not required. Your ServiceDesk SQL server must meet the requirements of ServiceDesk 7.5 before you install your Process Manager database.
You must migrate your Altiris 6.x product to an instance of the Symantec Management Platform. ServiceDesk 7.5 is compatible with versions 7.1 SP2.
For information about installing a 7.1 SP2 instance of the Symantec Management Platform, see the Symantec™ Management Platform 7.1 SP2 Installation Guide.
