Yes...at R7.8 this is a great tool. But it still doesn't do this
automatically. i.e. when I try to apply a fix it also applies
prerequisites....hmmm nice to have as long as no custom code.

I have a list of about 30 PTF's to put on ...do you want me to send the
list?

Kevin what fix # are you referring to? R7.8 does have a PCM at 9955. I
have not looked to see when the next one is planned.

Another thing in regards to prerequisites, we have created a function called
the Product Updates feature for Environment Maintenance that shows any
prereqs for a fix that you are planning to apply. It will also show you
what fixes you have not applied.

I agree.

That raises and issue: EVERYONE should be screaming for a PCM on R7.8. The
number of PTF's and the prerequisites just to get things running are way out
of control.

Call the hot line and DEMAND that they create a new PCM for R7.8.

I have one fix that is requiring a crap load of prerequisite PTF's!

Help!

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.

Weston

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.

Hello All.



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
level.



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
old
MM and have no fall back.



Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks
