OCUM 7.3 upgrade package unreleased?

Hi,

I'm not able to find the OCUM 7.3 upgrade package, on the software portal it says it's pending to be released. Right now only the OVA is available.
Do you have an estimated release date? We upgraded from 7.0 to 7.1 using the ISO but are now stuck to go to 7.3

We won't migrate any performance data so we won't need to go through 7.2.

 

Thanks in advance

Best regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

 

there were customer reported upgrade failures, so the upgrader has been pulled back as a precaution.

The Root Cause is understood. Build qualification is in process. Please be patient a little longer.

 

Personally I had the chance to download the upgrade ISO when it was still available and I did not have issues during the upgrade - but better safe than sorry...

 

Kind regards, Niels

Niels, the upgrade failure only happened if the system was originally upgraded from 6.2. Please see the details at Bugs Online.

If the condition ONLY applies to previously upgraded installs of 6.2 or earlier why can't those of us who are attempting a FRESH install of 7.1 get the package and get on with our lives????

Re: OCUM 7.3 upgrade package unreleased?

I just spoke to support.  No ETA for the update as of this morning and the previous image is NOT available for those of us upgrading from a fresh install of 7.2,

Hi Daniel,

 

Do you have an upgrade plan for OCUM 7.3.

I will be performing an upgrade from 7.2 to 7.3 for the first time and was looking for a consolidated plan which I could use.

Please let me know if you have one and can possibly share it with me.

 

Regards,

Ritesh

Hi Ritesh,

I didn't create a proper upgrade plan, I just took a VM snapshot before starting, but the process is very straight-forward. You just login at OS level in the system and from the menu you choose to upgrade, it will guide you through the process, it actually askes you to shutdown the system and take the snapshot to be safe. Then you need to load the ISO file in the virtual drive and proceed, after some time you reboot and all is done

 

Best regards,

Daniel
