Upgrading

The section provides information about the prerequisites and process for upgrading to a later version of Track-It!

Note

The existing BMC Client Management instance is not upgraded when you upgrade Track-It!. If you need to update BCM, you can download the latest BCM update and install it on your BCM server by using the Electronic Product Distribution (EPD) facility. For more information, see Downloading the installation files.

Prerequisites

  • BMC recommends that you create a backup set of the database of your current Track-It! version before upgrading.
  • Ensure that no users are using the Track-It! application during the upgrade. The Track-It! application setup will ask you to terminate any active user sessions.

Before you begin

The following upgrade paths are supported for Track-It!, version 20.19.03:

  • 20.18.03(RTM Build) To 20.19.03(RTM Build) 

  • 20.19.01(RTM Build) To 20.19.03(RTM Build) 

  • 20.19.02(RTM Build) To 20.19.03(RTM Build) 

For more information, see 20.19.xx and 20.18.xx features.

    Very light on the details. In the past, there were very specific detailed instructions to upgrade from one version of Track It to another.

      We are trying our best to make the Upgrade process quick and seamless. Most of the information you provide during First Install is already saved so that you do not have to enter them again. Please highlight the areas that further improvement and we would incorporate it to make it better.

      Hi, Jesus.

      In reply to your question, it is not possible to upgrade directly from version 11.4 to version 20.19.03. Instead, we recommend that you install version 20.19.03 and then use the Track-It! 2019 Data Migration Tool to migrate your data from 11.4 to 20.19.03.

      For more information about the upgrade path, see https://docs.bmc.com/docs/trackit2019/en/upgrading-852580883.html#Upgrading-Beforeyoubegin.
