    Question

    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?

    Answer

    Yes, when the u-tree is moved over, all the modifications *would* need to be redone.

    Instead:

    1. 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.

    2. Move only the Oracle data in doing the Production refresh.
