Downgrade from 5.9 to 5.7
« on: April 17, 2007, 02:38:48 AM »
Hi All,
I am facing a situation wherein I want to downgrade an ED of 5.9 version to 5.7. Can anyone guide me as to what steps are to be followed to do the same. I have tried restoring the ED with a 5.7 BM and 5.7 toolkit system, however, the restore is completed, but fails on ACC.
I have also tried removing the 5 new fields added upon upgrade, i.e. Saved_Lookups table fields : "Created_Using", "Settings", and "XML Version", and Users table: "LKey", "MLKey", and Rn_Interaction table: "Fax" field.
even after this process, ACC fails.

Please let me know if anyone knows how to go ahead with the downgrade.
Also, i would like to know the steps for a 5.9 BM downgrade to 5.7 too.

Thanks in advance for all the help.
Regards,
Ashish Kapoor.

Hi,

With the license manager part of the architecture in the 5.9 version it isusually advisable NOT to use a "downgraded" BM for production purposes. But, try taking out the MLkey and Lkey entries in the users table for starters.

You need to first tell your BM that it is no more a 5.9 version it is to look out for but a 5.7 one. I am not sure of the intricacies in case of a unicode 5.7 BM upgraded to 5.9 but it should not pose a problem as such.
 
That apart if you could analyze the BM in 5.9 and 5.7 and then compare for any tables that it would reference and purge tem in the ED and BM the ACC should go through fine. But this will require effort and time and would have to be a meticulous job.

Hope it helps.
Regards,
Pivotalnd.

I don't have anything to contribute but I am intrigued - why the downgrade?
