    V10 upgrade

      Hi,

      Has anyone attempted an upgrade from 8.7 to V10?  If so how was it?!  I'm holding off the PS upgrade for a bit but am keen to get MC and AM up as there is some functionality I'd like to use ASAP...

          Just make sure you have a good SQL backup and snapshot your servers prior. Also make sure you have no beta agents in your packages. Especially Insight agents.

          Are these servers dual role AMC/EMPS? Honestly I haven't tested upgrading one part on a dual role server and don't know how the new Server Configuration Portal will handle that. Might have to go do that right now... :)

            Yup, looks like having both the old SCU and the new SCP on the same box works.

              These are pure MC servers, they're load balanced so that usually results in having to re-apply permissions on the services as they get removed by the upgrade.  Not much of a big deal having the MC down for a bit so I'll go for...

              Shutdown both MC servers
              Snapshot both MC servers
              Backup DB
              Start back up
              Stop services on both
              Upgrade #1
              Check it's working okay
              Upgrade #2
