ldx_upgrade script

Use this script to upgrade your installed version of Link Index Provider to version 7.0.


The ldx_upgrade script upgrades all releases of Link Index Provider version 6 and later to version 7.0. Although the script file is in the upgrade/ldx directory, you must run it from the JTS_7.0_install_dir/server directory. Note that LDX is installed on the server where Jazz™ Team Server is installed. When you run the script, if the file path contains spaces, ensure that you enclose the path name in double quotation marks.
Tip: As an alternative to running the script and all its command-line arguments, you can open the script's parameters file, modify the default values, and run an abbreviated form of the command line.

The English and translated versions of the ldx_params files are in the JTS_7.0_install_dir/server/upgrade/ldx/params directory. Open ldx_params, or a translated version of the file, and specify values for each parameter. You must set the path parameter to point to the OLD_APPLICATION_HOME directory, which must be an existing directory whose name ends with server/conf.


The script performs the following task:
  • Copies all the required Link Index Provides files.

The path must not contain any spaces. In a typical installation, this path is old_JTS_install_dir/server/conf.
