This should be easy to find, but....

...Ladies, Gentlemen and Magnificent Gurus of EV,

I know this should be easy to find: that there is certain to be a beautifully crafted 'How to' or 'Best Practise' document in the website somewhere.

My searches so far have onl;y picked up the post traumatic documents, where things didn't go as foreseen.

I am trying to get a plan together, to upgrade our Enterprise Vault ver 2007 7.5 SP3  (32bit) server to version 8.0.SP5 (Same server, same environment), as a step along the way to upgrading to EV 9.x.

Please can someone point me in the direction of these words of wisdom ?

 

thank you very much !

 You would need to upgrade to EV 8 and complete the post-installation tasks before moving to EV 9.  The process is described in the Upgrade_Instructions.pdf/chm

Read through the release notes, and upgrade instructions

I would also suggest using the online release notes versus the ones on the media kit.  This is the link to them : http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/337277.htm

If you are using CA / DA, make sure you upgrade in correct path
