DEMO Databases for GoldMine Premium Edition (GMPE) 2015.1

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 # 17536 - GoldMine 2015.1 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
