Upgrade from 32 bit to 64 bit RTC Server


Shelby Phillips (29624621) | asked Dec 11 '09, 1:34 p.m.
Is there support to upgrade from a 32-bit to 64-bit RTC installation? This includes the following scenarios:

1) Upgrading an RTC server from 32 bit to 64 bit
2) Upgrading the SQL DB from 32 bit to 64 bit

Just to be clear - you are trying to upgrade RTC in place (ie you have an existing setup and want to move to a 64 bit version)?

Correct. We are looking to support the upgrade of an existing project environment from 32 bit to 64 bit. This includes the RTC Server, OS, and SQL Server which resides on a dedicated machine.

my suggestion:
1)install a fresh new RTC 64 bit ( assuming for Linux)
2)export your repository
3)establish the connection between the new RTC and your db
4)import the your db tar file to the new database using repotools

you may create a service request using:
http://www-01.ibm.com/software/support/probsub.html
or by calling 1-800-IBM-SERV

and a Support Engineer can assist you with you request

Please make sure, that you are using supported environment

The link provided does not specify whether SQL Server 2005 64 bit is supported.

Can you confirm if RTC 2.0 is compatible with SQL Server 2005 SP2 64 bit?

In summary yes it is. We are silent on the "wordness" of the databases and to be honest we can't test with every single combination but we are sufficiently abstracted from the DBs that if there are any issues they would not be specific to RTC. As an example, on some platforms (e.g. DB2 Enterprise on Linux, 64-bit is the only option available). It should simply work.

Is there a 64 bit version DB2 WSE for Windows available for download to go along with 64 bit version of RTC?

There is none that I can see in the Zip version, possibly in the Installation Manager version?

Thanks, Pat
