Re:Re: [IDMSVENDOR-L] 17.0 Upgrade

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Jan 28, 2010
We downloaded the software Nov 1 2008 - we were fully in production
April
19 2009

I will try to go back thru my notes and get a more detailed timeline

from what I have read - a migration from 16 to 17 is VERY painless -
from
15 to 17 requires a bit more work (because of the things you would have
been bitten by had you gone to 16 first ...)

How long is everyone taking to install 17.0? I'm talking about from the
day you download it from CA to the day you are 100% running in
production. The site I support is upgrading from 16.0 SP7 to 17.0 SP1.

"to add to TOC (the other Chris' comments)

go to SP1 - it will definitely save you pain
apply as many PTFs as possible - there are new features introduced vis PTF
after SP1
we too were seduced by the zIIP - we too could have gone quicker - but we
are hindered by
business-mandated software freezes - (as opposed to our art department
mandated software Frieze)

the performance issues in INTC are behind them. We'll see in a couple
months when our performance guys get their hands on it.
