We are excited for the new 7.3 release and it's actually coinciding with some other major changes we have planned for our SD. We've started to brainstorm some of the plans for the project and I wanted to see if this is plausible...
Build a completely new system/database in version 7.3 and migrate only the incident history from our current database into the new one, ignoring configuration/settings, etc.
Or build up a clean 7.2 environment, migrate the incidents, then upgrade.
The idea behind this is that I'd like to start with a completely clean database but retain our incident history. Other config/design doesn't matter that much at this point. The reason for this is because I have reason to question the integrity of our current database as it has been upgraded and modified many times since it's original inception; we are at a point where we are looking at a significant amount of work to redesign it in many ways and it seems like it would be a good time to do this if possible.
