How do we upgrade CLM 4.0 to 4.0.0.1: IBMinstallMgr update told us to install, and its install told us to update


long TRUONG (365491132) | asked Oct 02 '12, 5:46 p.m.
Anyone can share with us the experience of an upgrade of RRC from 4.0 to the newly released 4.0.0.1 ? We are actually only interested in upgrading our RRC from 4.0 to 4.0.0.1 to get the fix for CRRRW7291E, however we thought we would upgrade the full CLM package. We had downloaded JTS-CCM-QM-RM-repo-4.0.0.1.zip and use the IBM installation Manager to: - install: it told us to use Update to change an existing installation. - Update: It told us that the package cannot be updated , has to be installed. Does that mean that we have to do full new install to a new group/dir to get up to 4.0.0.1 ? And that is the only package available for download ? i.e. NO update-repo package ?

This is the output of repotools-jts -addTables command we ran during our upgrade from 4.0 to 4.0.0.1. It did update the database.

Thanks Clement. This saves us time to poke into the upgrade scripts to see if there are DB's updates. And we will save time and efforts now with the decision not to upgrade anything but RRC to 4.0.0.1, which would provide us the fix that we actually need. 


BTW Do you imply that there are no DB updates from repotools-ccm and repotools-qm ?

You actually need to use the upgrade script and the Installation Manager. 

Pls run the Interactive Upgrade Guide and it will tell you every step you need.

We did follow the Interactive Upgrade Guide  which actually told us to do exactly the same as an upgrade from 3.x to 4.0, which is a full new install to a new group/dir, then run the upgrade scipt.


From 3.x to 4.0, the upgrade scripts updated the DBs, we just wonder if 4.0 to 4.0.0.1 will require any DB updated (for JTS, RTC, RQM) and if not is there any alternative to a full new install first prior to running the upgrade script ?
