    How do I upgrade procedures from GoldMine Standard edition 6.5 to GMPE?


    Resolution

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This is the dbase or standard version that doesn't run on MSSQL.  My previous instructions pertain to upgrading from GoldMine Standard Edition not GoldMine Corporate or SQL version of 6.5.

    Please do the following:

    1. Please      ensure you have a good backup of the Goldmine directory
    2. If      on GoldMine standard; Go through these steps to run re-indexing and      rebuild and pack, sort and verify on all database files before upgrading:
      1.  
      2. Log       into GoldMine with master rights
      3.  
      4. Go       to >>file>>maintain databases>>all database       files>>next>>check all files in GoldMine directory and all       contact set files>>next>>next>>finish *this is called       running a re-index
      5.  
      6. Go       to >>file>>maintain databases>>all database       files>>next>>check all files in GoldMine directory and all       contact set files>>next>>check ‘rebuild and pack’, sort and       verify>>next>>finish
    3. run      installer to upgrade to GoldMine Standard 6.70 on server
    4. repeat      steps 1-3 while on GoldMine Standard 6.7
    5. copy      off the entire GoldMine Standard root directory to a safe place
    6. uninstall GoldMine Standard 6.7 from add/remove programs in control panel
    7. delete      the goldmine folder left behind from previous install (if still there)
    8. install      SQL disks for SQL 2005
    9. install      GMPE fresh
    10. go      through New database wizard to Rehost 6.7 GoldMine Standard dbase tables into GMPE SQL      database:
      1.  
      2. log       into goldmine with master rights
      3.  
      4. go       to >>tools>>databases>>new database
      5.  
      6. check       both boxes ‘Create or copy date for Contact set tables’ and ‘Create or       copy data for base Goldmine tables’
      7.  
      8. next
      9.  
      10. click       on alias manager and choose new alias
      11.  
      12. enter       data for new alias and SQL login credentials you used to install SQL with      
      13.

      15.  
      16. click       ok
