Upgrade MAXDb 7.3.0.35 to 7.9 ( SAP Content Server 6.40)

46 Views

Hello All,

I need to migrate my SAP Content Server 6.40 with MaxDB 7.3.0.35 in Windows 2003 server X64to a new server.

The plan is to upgrade from 7.3.0.35 to 7.6 then restore it in to new server with MaxDB 7.6 and upgrade it to 7.9.

Is this the correct aproach?

I also saw SAPNOTE 2143316 - Homogeneous system copy: From SAP DB Version 7.3 with backup/recovery to SAP MaxDB Version 7.6 that says I can migrate to other system but with version 7.3.0.50..

I found an update patch to version 62 :-) , but when I update the databases , The procedure ended with error :

STDOUT: starting preparing phase of package PCR 7104 7.1.04.45 STDOUT: ------------------------------------------------------ MSG: update test: release equal or higher than installed MSG: update from "7.1.4.43" to "7.1.04.45" allowed STDOUT: update release check... ok magic test mode: 64TO32 MSG: magic test: ok STDOUT: update binary magic check... ok STDOUT: checking interferences to other packages...
