DS 7.1 SP1 to DS 7.5 Upgrade

Created: 08 Oct 2013 | 2 comments

Hello. I have just been notified of the release of DS 7.5. I currently have DS7.1 and have a pre-upgrade question.

is there anything that i need to perform prior to the upgrade using the SIM? (apart from a good backup)

Is the correct way to upgrade this to open SIM > Click Upgrade installed products > Click next to upgrade the installation.

I have attached a screenshot of the process which I will follow.

Please can someone confirm these actions are good.

Thanks in advance.

One thing i failed to backup, images.  I had backed them up for past upgrades and I dont know why I didnt this time.  It appears as though the 7.1 deployment share gets blown away as part of the upgrade process.  See my forum thread here:
