    testing version 9

      I want to test version 9 prior to upgrading my production system.

      I am thinking of doing the following, and want to make sure my thinking is correct:

      • set up a testing system running the same OS and database
      • install a trial version of version 8.5 on the test system
      • export my database and monitors from my production system
      • restore both to my test system
      • verify the monitors and alerts are working
      • do the upgrade on the test system

      Does this sound right?  Will I cause any issues with my production environment doing this?  I will change who receives alerts in the test environment so only I get alerted, of course.

      Thanks in advance.
