    NCM with NPM 11.5.3 > 12.0.1 upgrade

    squinsey

      Hey all,

      Quick update during our preproduction upgrade of SolarWinds.

      This may not effect the majority but may catch some out.

       

      The Product Upgrade Advisor is a wonderful thing helping plan out what to install - so per the guides, use it!
      Sometime it feels like there is a random generator when reading the install order list, but I'm certain them smart SolarWinds people have added wizardry in there.

      It did correctly advise we needed to bunny hop NPM 11.5.3 > 12.0 > 12.0.1, however we hit a hiccup in the process as NCM installers demanded 7.4.1 > 7.5 > 7.5.1   

       

      I've included my Advisor. Just need to add the backend update smarts? so Step 5 changes in future, becoming a 2 step like NPM
      eg:

      1/ NPM 11.5.3 > 12.0

      .......

      5/ NCM 7.4.1 > 7.5
      6/ NPM 12.0 > 12.0.1
      7/ NCM 7.5 > 7.5.1
      8/ SAM 6.2.3 > 6.3

      9/ NTA 4.1.2 > 4.2.1

       

       

      Happy days

           ...... ALSO REMOVE OGS (Orion Global Search) IF YOU HAVE IT INSTALLED!!

      meech - Could you add a pre warning somewhere also for those with OGS

       

      Cheers
