MIGRATING FROM 5.X to 6

It is possible to migrate from a 5.X version to VISUAL PLANNING ENTERPRISE 6:

  • using the complete vp6enterprise package,

  • using an existing J2EE server.

Migrating with the complete package

Whenever possible, it is strongly recommended to perform migration tests in a test environment, before proceeding with the migration of the live environment.

The test environment must never use the same database server as the live environment.

Proceed in the following order:

  • Get a VISUAL PLANNING 6 license number

  • Backup all the planners currently in use in VPS format

  • Stop the vpserver service

  • Proceed with a normal installation of version 6 of VISUAL PLANNING ENTERPRISE.

    • In response to the question “Is this installation an update of a preceding version of VP ENTERPRISE installed on this server?”

    • Select Yes.

see Installing VISUAL PLANNING ENTERPRISE

  • Uninstall the preceding version and send the uninstall code to our technical support department: support@stilog.com
