I am in a mission of upgrading the TD 8.0 to QC 9.0. I have looked up some documentation and guidelines. The mercury documentation guides us to have the upgrade done from two different platforms/servers, one where we have the TD and other one hosting the QC and then do the migration.
Now my question/concern is: Is it possible to have the TD 8.0-QC 9.0 upgrade done from the same server box? Has anyone done the QC upgraded in the same box they had the TD installed?
To answer your question, Yes. I think what you are trying to ask is how to perform:
( I am assuming that You have Quality Center 8.0)
This is what I am doing currently:
a) Backup of File system and database
b) Identify site administrator user ( any user that is present in the QCsiteadmin_Db can act as site administrator in the MQC 9.0) later on you can change or create new one.
c)Make a note of current repository location.
d)Uninstall the current version of Quality Center ( when you uninstall, you will not loose project information)
e)start the MQC 9.0 installation process
f)Follow the screens
g)In one of the screens named "Schema found"
Select Use existing schema
h)Finish the installation process
i ) restart the machine
j) Logon to site administrator
k) Select each project, then click on Upgrade
i) rest is common
