Could you please let me know if you have found some solution for this upgrade, I'm looking for one. We are trying to Upgrade to ALM 11 on different hardware (windows 2008 server) from the current version QC 10 (Solaris Server).
We are having a hardtime as we are not able to import projects from QC 10 to QC 11 as QC 10 is using Oracle DB server and QC Will be pointed to SQL 2008
I'm giving more details here w.r.t QC's Hardware and Software versions
QC 10 - Solaris OS
DB - Oracle 10.2.0.4
App Server - Weblogic
QC 11 - Windows 2008
DB - SQL 2008 R2 SP2
App Server - JBOSS
The Only hard time we are having is Moving the projects from QC 10 to QC 11
Appreciate your help in this regards!! Also If you can e-mail the step-by-step instruction for upgrading it will be more helpful to us.
Agree 100% with Trudy, you need to involve the support lines. Also, make sure to get HP PS - Professional Services involved in the upgrade. I know that there is some documentation on how to upgrade from Db types (oracle to sql and vice-versa), but to do everythign at once, upgrade db and app is a bit tricky and risky.
Rather upgrade 1 at a time only, starting with a mirror environment of your QC instance. Upgrade the db first, see how the projects migrate from Oracle to Sql.
