Downtime for upgrade from SP14 to SP23 - PI 7.0

Hello All,

What is the estimated downtime for upgrading PI7.0 from SP14 to SP23. We only have one application server in the environment and the decision to upgrade will happen based on the downtime information . Appreciate any response . Thanks Rahul.

    Hi Rahul,

    We have recently upgraded our PI 7.0 system from SP 21 to SP 21.

    Basis team has requested for 19 hrs downtime. But the actual downtime that was required was less than 10 hours.

    During upgrade, you have a downtime minimisation approach which would enable you to perform few actvities online without bringing down the system.

    To follow this approach, Goto the transaction code "SAINT" --> Extras --> Settings --> Import Queue --> Import Mode.

    There would be an option called "Downtime-minimized". Check that option so that you would be able to reduce the downtime during the upgrade.

    Regards,

    Subbu

    Thanks for the replies guys . Our basis has done the upgrade in DEV . The downtime was like 20 hrs or so , but it didn't matter since its DEV Now we are planning to do it in production and the downtime requested was 30 hrs and you all know that its not a feasible number in production .
