Upgrading BMC Atrium Core
Upgrade BMC Atrium Core after you have upgraded BMC Remedy AR System. Carefully review and complete the preupgrade and postupgrade tasks before and after the upgrade process.
BMC recommends that you perform the BMC Atrium Core upgrade during off-peak hours when no major activity (such as running a data exchange or a reconciliation job) is underway on the AR System server.
Before you upgrade BMC Atrium Core
- If you have not done so already, perform the tasks in Preparing.
If you have not done so already, do one of the following to prepare the server group for upgrade:
- Preparing the AR System server for a server group upgrade - Perform these steps when you are performing a staged upgrade or plan to upgrade the server group during a scheduled outage window.
- Preparing for an in-place, zero-downtime upgrade of the platform - If you want to upgrade the platform components that are a part of a server group environment with no scheduled outage, you must perform pre-configuration steps on the primary and secondary servers prior to upgrade.
Perform the procedures in Preparing for the BMC Atrium Core upgrade.
