Steps to upgrade Business One 8.82 to 9.1 new server

I can't seem to find the accelerated upgrade program for 8.82 to 9.1.

We will be upgrading to a new server at the same time.

Is there a step by step process written for 1st testing then final upgrade?

    • Hi,

      None of this actually answers my question.

      We have B1 ver 8.82 running on a production server.

      I want to install B1 ver 9.1 on a new virtual server for testing.

      1. Is the correct process to install 8.82 on the new virtual server

      2. Restore a copy of the production database to the new server

      3. Upgrade that to 9.1 for testing

      4. When testing is complete, repeat the process.

      The new virtual server becomes the new production server.

      In other systems I can install the new version (9.1), migrate the old version data (8.82) to the new version.

      Convert the data to the new version (9.1)

      Run tests and update necessary changes to forms, reports etc.

      When complete retain the changes and migrate current data from the old version.

      Is this process not possible in SAP B1?

      Thanks in advance for any assistance.

      Kathy
