Creating a test and training environment (QQ) as you describe is good.
I'd recommend that for production "live" system. You first backup MM...then
run the upgrade to R7.8, update PLMC, repoint to the forms created in QQ
during test and training...
You "fall back" is the backup of MM.
Nice, clean and less confusing to the users.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Upgrade to 7.8 question.
I have a question that maybe some of you CAS experts can help point me in
the right direction.
I have been working on getting our production environment to 7.8.
So, I have built a 7.8 environment (QQ) from initial install and have
successfully immigrated data from
our 7.0 production environment (MM) . The QQ environment is at 9955 ptf
We also run PLMC for labor reporting and Formtastic for MM.
I am thinking about these two paths for getting a our production to 7.8.
1. Run the data immigration from MM to QQ . Then installing PLMC
And then remove MM from the environment list and make QQ the default
environment so to speak.
That way I would have a fall back if needed.
2. Or be brave, and: Run the data immigration from MM to QQ.
Delete MM and then create MM from QQ.
That way I would have PLMC working out of the box. But I would crush the old
MM and have no fall back.
Any thoughts would be helpful.
