Supported Upgrade Paths
To upgrade to PPM version 9.509.51, you must have PPM version 9.40 (with or without service packs) installed. If an earlier version is installed, you must first upgrade to version 9.40, and then upgrade to PPM version 9.509.51.
For information on how to upgrade to version 9.40, see the Upgrade Guide for version 9.40.
Note: We strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version of PPM Center. In general, each new PPM version includes important product improvements that are not provided in earlier versions.
Caution: If your organization still uses a Documentumbased document management system (either embedded Documentum Content Server software we supply or integration with standalone Documentum Content Server software using connector), make sure you migrate it to PPM Center Database DMS using the Administration Console tool DMS Configuration on PPM version 9.13 or later before you upgrade PPM Center to version 9.40.
For detailed instructions about how to migrate a Documentumbased DMS, see the Document Management Guide and Reference for PPM version 9.20.
Caution: If you deployed an ALM content bundle for integration purpose on PPM version 9.12 or earlier, and configured any integration solutions using the ALM entities provided, to avoid any potential data loss with your integration solutions, make sure you upgrade PPM to version 9.14, then proceed to upgrade to version 9.20, then 9.30, 9.40, and then finally to version 9.50.
Note that unless advised otherwise, we strongly recommend you keep using the old ALM content bundle. There is no need to deploy a new ALM content bundle, regardless of which version of PPM you upgraded to.
The following table describes supported upgrade paths in more details.
Versions in parenthesis can be skipped. For example, if you want to upgrade PPM to 9.30 from 8.00, you should first upgrade to 9.10, with or without upgrading to 8.0x, then upgrade to 9.20, with or without upgrading to 9.2x, and finally upgrade to 9.30.
