Upgrading EV from 8.o4 to 10
I wonder if anyone can advise me with the EV upgrade process/order from 8.0.4 to version 10.
Currently I have one EV 8.0 SP4 with remote SQL server. One EV storage group, two index locations, journaling enabled. All drives SAN based. and my plan is to upgrade to 10 also to move EV server to a new windows 2008 64-bit hardware and to move the sql EV databases to a newly SQL 2008 server.
This is my high level plan:
- in-place upgrade the current EV server to version 9.0 with latest SP.
- Move the EV database which are currently on a remote sql 2005 server to a newly SQL 2008 box.
- Install EV 9.0 on the new Windows 2008 server – keeping the same EV server name
- Upgrade EV 9.0 to version 10.
I have not yet read what is new in EV 10 but I believe there are some new upgrade on this version with regards of indexing, do I need to be prepare for unexpected surprises things like incompatibilities or anything else.
I would also like to have a separate indexing for the journaling archiving so that when we search journal the process will be faster.
Any advice or suggestion will be much appreciated.
Enjoy the Olympic games..
