I have been trying to upgrade the DFM version from 4.0.2 to 5.2.3 ( Oncommand core package for 7 mode) . The new version software is sucessfully installed. But while trying to restore the backup getting the following error.
The system has enoguh space and memory. 80GB of free space and 16GB RAM, Windows 7.
"SQL error : Not enough memory to start"
Error: unable to upgrade the database to the latest file format.
Please advise the workaround for this issue.

Re: DFM upgrade failed ( Unable to upgrade the database to the latest file format )
The IMT will allow you to validate Host Operating System versions, as well as, Data Ontap versions that are supported with OnCommand Unified Manager Core Package 5.2.3
If the Error persists, you could look at the option of standing up a new Windows host for an OnCommand Unified Manager Core Package 5.2.3 server instance, with the intention of start a new monitoring server. Discover all of the 5 HA pairs into the new 5.2.3 Server
You can then configure the DFM Acquisition service to 'Manual start' within the Windows OS that hosts the 4.0.X server. This configuration will stop the 4.0.X DFM from trying to gather data from any of the Data Ontap HA Pairs that are now being monitored by the new 5.2.3 server.
It also allows you access to any historical Performance data that may be contained within the 4.0.X Database.
Over time, you will eventually be able to phase out the 4.0.X server to reclaim the VM resources back into the environment.
It has been my experience, when making huge version jumps, that it's best to just start over with a new installation of the latest compatible version, to ensure stability of the OnCommand Unified Manager server in the long run.
