For our upgrade to 7.8, this is what we did.

Created a test environment (TT) from MM and upgraded to 7.8.

After testing, program issues, etc., we backed up and then upgraded MM
to 7.8

Reinstalled PLMC to MM.

The most time consuming issue was apply PTFs past the 9955 level that we
needed and had already applied to MM at 7.7.

Creating a test and training environment (QQ) as you describe is good.

I'd recommend that for production "live" system. You first backup
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.

Hello All.

I have a question that maybe some of you CAS experts can help point me
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
for QQ.

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
MM and have no fall back.

Any thoughts would be helpful.
