Upgrade considerations

This topic lists items for you to take into consideration as you plan your upgrade to version 3.1 or the latest version 3.1 service pack. The topic contains the following sections:

Important

The procedures described in this topic apply to upgrading to version 3.1 or upgrading to the latest version 3.1 service pack, unless otherwise specified. 

Before you begin upgrading

Before upgrading the products, you must add all the products from the version 2.1 or version 3.0 environments to the version 3.1.x environment. You must perform this step to prevent any installer registry issues during the upgrade.

When you are creating the installation environment by adding products from previous environments to the version 3.1.x environment, you can change the deployment type of your BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management environment, if required. For example if you installed a Small deployment type during version 2.1, you can change the deployment type to Medium or Large when you add products to the version 3.1.x environment.

Note

Downsizing a deployment type without prior preparation might cause issues with your installation environment.

Upgrading from BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management version 2.1.x

If you are upgrading from 2.1.x to 3.1 you are required to upgrade all products in the solution. You must complete all the prerequisites for the upgrade and data migration to successfully complete the upgrade process.

Upgrading from BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management version 3.0.x

Because not all products in the solution are revised in version 3.1, you need to upgrade only those products that are listed in the following section.
