Good morning,

 

I need to update my UIM environment, I am currently in version 8.0.

 

My environment is of the following form;

 

Hub-Primary       -  Windows Server 2012 Standard
Primary UMP      - Windows Server 2012 Standard
Secondary UMP - Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
Database            - MSSQL Server

 

By the document "What is my update to the latest version 8.5.1"

 

Https://www.ca.com/us/services-support/ca-support/ca-support-online/knowledge-base-articles.tec000004964.html

 

I would have to upgrade 4 times, 8.0 -> 8.2 -> 8.47 -> 8.51 -> 8.51 SP1.

 

To expedite this process, I had the following idea;

 

1- Provisioning a new server to the primary HUB.

 

2- Stop the "data_engine" probe in the old primary HUB.

 

3- Run the new installation on the new Server and point to the same database being used by the old primary HUB, so you would not lose the historical QOS and Alarm data.

 

4- Move the robots from the old domain to the new domain.

 

5. Uninstall the previous UMPs and install the new version 8.5.1.

 

6 - Upgrade to version 8.5.1 SP1.

 

Would you like to know that someone else has already done this?

 

And if it can work?

 

Thank you.
