In running Upgrade Express for Production after having done an initial test upgrade and making our local modifications to the u-tree, should the "Create Customer data" be done with "Pack the u-tree" and the Oracle data -- or just the Oracle data?
Would all the modifications need to be redone if we moved over both the u-tree and the data?
Yes, when the u-tree is moved over, all the modifications *would* need to be redone.
A. Check the $alephe_root, $alephe_tab, and each library's $data_tab for changes which have occurred in your old version since the copy of the u-tree in the initial test upgrade -- and then make those same changes in the new version.
B. Move only the Oracle data in doing the Production refresh. Steps:
On the Source server:
2. Export customer data
-> 1. Export Oracle data (this will generate the ./data/a20_1.tar.gz file), then:
3. Transfer customer data to the target location (or use sftp to do manual transfer)
On the Target server:
2. Install customer data
-> 1. Install Oracle data
Note: In doing this as part of the actual cutover, Aleph should be down on both the Source server and the Target.
