Last week saw us having a few festivities to mark the end of a major project here; our XP to Windows 7 migration. We're all pretty chuffed with what we've achieved here; a very smooth user upgrade with remarkably few hitches considering from start to finish the project of migrating nearly 2900 machines took 7 months.

This really was a remarkable success. The target time to migrate a user's desktop from XP to Windows 7 was set at 1hr, and this average time was to hold no matter what the site link speed was, and despite the fact that machines would be competing with up to 15 machines being deployed concurrenty.

Most of the migrations were also complicated by the fact that they were at user's desks which were distributed across 50 sites. To enable the deskside techs to focus on confirming machine configuration, specialist software requirements, and...

Just imported some job binary for normally well behaved jobs on a new DS6.9 SP6 server (on Windows 2008 R2 with SQL Server 2012) and started getting this error on tasks running embedded scripts.

Never seen this before which is odd as I've been using these job sets for years (since SP4). It's an access denied problem...  and sometimes it happens... sometimes it doesn't.

Feels like a support ticket is looming... :-(

Migration: A migration is when you install the latest version of the IT Management Suite solutions on a new server, and then migrate the data from the earlier ITMS solutions to the latest version of the application.

Upgrade: An upgrade is when you install the latest version of ITMS on the same hardware, server operating system, and database.

You must migrate the Notification Server 6.x or 7.0 data to either Notification Server 7.1 SP2 or Notification Server 7.5. After migrating the data, you must first upgrade to either ITMS 7.1 SP2 MP1.1 or ITMS 7.5 HF6 depending on the path you choose and then upgrade to ITMS 7.5 SP1.

The following diagram gives an overview of the migration and upgrade process:

Here's a little tip if you are thinking to upgrade to ITMS 7.5 SP1.

 

During the upgrade of deployment, I discovered that the installation deletes deployment folder, and then makes a new one. So if you have your unattended xml files in this folder, make sure that you make a backup of them. When the upgrade is complete, you will see that your image jobs ar corrupted. because xml files are missing. You now need to copy your XML files into the deployment folder again. But image jops ar still not working.

 

I contacted symantec support and they gave me this sql query,

 

UPDATE ItemVersionData 
   SET [State] = cast([State] as nvarchar(max)) + '</vItem>' 
 WHERE [State] like '<vItem>%' and [State] not like '%</vItem>' and LEN(cast([State] as nvarchar(max))) < 4000

 

Run this after you copy youre xml files to the deployment...
