Migration of Windchill 10.2 M010 to 11

Re: Migration of Windchill 10.2 M010 to 11

Tom, thanks for the help with the SQL question.  Yes, we want to stay with SQL and since we have the PDM Essentials we will be moving from the existing SQL 2012 (with our version 10) to SQL 2014 (with version 11).  Does having PDM Essentials change any of the basic questions that I originally stated about the options to create a test Windchill server (either cloning the existing server, renaming it, then upgrading Windchill vs. building a new server and rehosting Windchill)?  Thanks for your help!

Re: Migration of Windchill 10.2 M010 to 11

Brian,

   Just for some clarification (to you and anyone else reading these posts):

   We had two ideas on how to build a test Windchill 11 system using a copy of our existing Windchill 10 data:

  1. Rename:  
    1. Clone existing Windchill 10 VM.
    2. Rename utility:  This allows us to have both our production Windchill 10 and a test Windchill 10 system at the same time.
    3. Upgrade test Windchill 10 system.
    4. Test Windchill 11.
  2. Rehost:
    1. Build new Windchill 11 VM.
    2. Rehost utility:  Copies data from production Windchill 10 system to test Windchill 11 system.
    3. Test Windchill 11.

   Then for either option we'd need to plan to go live on Windchill 11:

  1. Either run throught the entire process that we used to create Windchill 11 (either Rename or Rehost)
  2. Or refresh data from production Windchill 10 to Windchill 11.

   I hope that this helps clarify how we were thinking about using the Rename and Rehost utilities.

   Thanks again for your help!
