DEMO Databases for GoldMine Premium Edition (GMPE) 2014.2

Version 13

    Details

    - GoldMine Demo databases are often used to verify a  certain behavior in GoldMine Premium Edition (GMPE) or also GoldMine  Mobile (GMME) or GoldMine Web (GMWEB) with not customized or default  customized data

    - Please keep in mind that any non GoldMine or  non Heat Software links in this article are only provided as-is and content and  availability may change at any time without any notice

    -  The below mentioned GoldMine demo databases are provided by GoldMine  Technical Support only as-is and without any warranty of any kind.

    - The GoldMine demo databases were created on a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP3 version and can therefore be restored on any Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP3 and higher version of Microsoft  SQL Server. If applicable, the compatibility level of the  database needs to be adjusted to the current used Microsoft  SQL Server version via SQL Server Management Studio >> Right  click on the database >> Properties >> Page Options >>  Compatibility Level (this should be always set to the highest possible) 

    -  Although it is not expected - as the GoldMine Demo databases are  created with quite unique database names - the GoldMine Administrator or  SQL DBA needs to make sure that no current database will be overwritten  due to the same database name and/or underlying file names and  location.

    -  Please make sure to restore and use the GoldMine Demo databases only on supported Microsoft SQL Server versions (see also related Knowledge Article # 15292 - GoldMine 2014.2 Compatibility Matrix)
     
    - GoldMine Technical Support will not assist in restoring the Demo databases, please refer to the Microsoft SQL Server version's Online help or for example to the following web site for further information https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms177429(v=sql.100).aspx. If applicable select the appropriate SQL Server version from the Other Versions drop down

    - GoldMine Technical Support will not assist in troubleshooting any Demo  database especially when the database was already modified. For any reported  issue GoldMine Technical Support will attempt to replicate in a fresh copy of the specific Demo database and then  determine the next steps which may be either logging with Development or simply taking offline the specific Demo database(s)

    -  Only GoldMine Demo databases of the GA release for the certain version  and the currently last available Hot fix are provided. Within a major  version of GoldMine Premium Edition there are no major structure changes  expected, so that a database revision is sufficient and no complete  upgrade from the application is necessary. In cases where any lower Hot  fix Demo databases are required to be tested, the GA release Demo  database needs to be downloaded and once the Demo database is available  and started with GoldMine an automatic request for a database revision  will be shown and needs to be performed.

    - It is absolutely not  recommended to use a GoldMine Demo database with a higher version/build  number with a lower GoldMine Premium Edition version/build.

    - The GoldMine Demo Databases are only available in ANSI format and not in UNCIODE. In case a UNCIODE Demo databases is desire, the desired Demo database should be downloaded in ANSI format and then a rehost into a UNCIODE database from within GoldMine  Premium Edition via Tools>> Databases >> New Database with selecting the UNICODE feature should be performed.

    -  the GoldMine Administrator needs to create a separate database alias  per used GoldMine Demo database. It is absolutely recommended to use the  same alias name as the GoldMine Demo database name for a better  identification. 

    - It is absolutely recommended wherever  possible to use GoldMine Demo databases only on test environments and  not within the production environment. Where this is not possible it is  highly recommended to attach the Demo database and perform the desired tests only  before or after business hours as modifications of the production GM.INI  may be necessary.

    - It is recommended to make back ups of the current GM.INI, DBALIAS.INI, USER.INI files.

    -  The GoldMine Administrator has to make sure that prior any test with  the GoldMine Demo database(s) within the production system the system is  adjusted correctly and fully changed to the Demo database - GOLDDIR and  COMMONDIR in the GM.INI - and if applicable the COMMONDIR entry in the  testing user's USER.INI. All references (depending on what needs to be tested) should refer to the GoldMine Demo database, otherwise undesired data might be recorded in the production database. It is absolutely recommended prior the tests to verify correct entries via GoldMine menu >> Help  >> About GoldMine >> Button System >> GoldMine Files  and Contact Files for every testing user

    -  The GoldMine Administrator has to make sure that  after a test with the GoldMine Demo database(s) within the production  system the system is reset, pointing correctly and fully again to the  original production database - GOLDDIR and COMMONDIR in the GM.INI - and  if applicable the  COMMONDIR entry in the testing user's USER.INI. All references need to  refer again to the production database, otherwise data might be recorded  in the demo database instead into the production database. It is  absolutely recommended after the tests to verify correct entries via  GoldMine menu >> Help >> About GoldMine >> Button  System >> GoldMine Files and Contact Files for every testing user

    - All GoldMine Demo databases have only the user MASTER with a default password access
