Upgrading to 7.5 With DMC Currently Installed
I've asked this a couple of times with no real answer and had a thought once 7.5 comes out (which is now!) to migrate to a new server to avoid issues. Basically we have the Dell Management Console installed and don't want it there. If we try to remove it we get a large number of errors in the logs probably caused by database items being left behind or bad pointers or all of the above. It had been recommended to call support for help (there was a rumor of a tool that can remove it a few versions ago) but they didn't have any recommendation except for keeping it since its harmless. It was then recommended ti use 7.5 to migrate to a new DB and server without DMC installed. Makes sense except that all of the documents say to be sure that you're in product parity! That won't help me if I want to remove DMC! Now, however, there's a twist...when I go to our SMP server and launch SIM I can upgrade to 7.5 and under the items that will be removed are all of the Dell components!
What I am asking, finally, is does anyone know that this will work? Can I do the upgrade and have it successfully remove DMC without any issues? If so then that's the route I will go as it is the easiest for us (even though we do want to place the DB on a new DB server anyway but can handle that differently).
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
