Upgrading a Build Forge database

Jozef Vandenmooter (16332633) | asked May 21 '15, 5:52 p.m.


Has anyone ever upgraded a Build Forge database? In order to test the upgrade from SQL_Server 2005 to SQL_Server 2008 and version to , we cloned the Production Build Forge server and copied its database from a SQL_Server 2005 database server to a SQL_Server 2008 database server. I updated the ODBC connection on the cloned server accordingly and also updated both buildforge.conf files with the new database info and server name.

We obtained a temporary server license from IBM and Build Forge on the cloned server works perfectly (I executed a couple of builds).

However, Build Forge is now running against a SQL_Server 2008 database using SQL_Server 2005 drivers. Is that supported? Unfortunately, I don't find information anywhere how to manually update these drivers, and as far as I know it is not possible to re-execute the Build Forge setup (like we do in Jazz). Will I be able to update the drivers when I do the upgrade from to

 The libraries should be copied into the Apache\tomcat\lib folder.  You should be able to just swap out the files there and update the jar file.
