We are running Windchill/PDMLink 9.0m050 on Windows 32bit servers. Management has asked for a hardware plan to support an upgrade to Windchill/PDMLink 10.0m020 early next year. We are on Wildfire 4 m150, but moving to a newer build of WF4 is easy to get done. We would then look at upgrading to Creo after the WC10 upgrade.
My concern is new hardware across the board that is not compatible with what we run today. With new hardware needed and WC10 needing a 64bit OS, it becomes an upgrade/rehost to get back up. I know PTC says to do one or the other first, then the second, but the hardware/OS change says I can't get there from here without doing 2 or even 3 upgrades.
Has anyone done a upgrade/rehost from 9m050 to 10 with also going from 32bit to 64bit servers?
