Command View EVA upgrade or uninstall/install?

Hello,

I am using Command View EVA 8.02 to manage an EVA5000, 8000 and 8100. I would like to upgrade to CV 9.3. As this is not a supported upgrade, my options are either to uninstall 8.02 and install 9.3 or upgrade 8.02 to 9.2 and then from 9.2 to 9.3. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on whether one of these routes would be more desirable.

Thanks!

Even the "upgrade" will uninstall the earlier version first.

So uninstall it, reboot and install the new version 9.3.

Hope this helps!

BTW, I remember the "patch" version 6.2.1 (IIRC): The version 6.2 must be installed before 6.2.1 could be installed. But in fact the system did an uninstall of 6.2 and installed 6.2.1. So if you did a new installation, you did install 6.2, the system did an uninstall and then install 6.2.1 - great!

I hope this will not happen again ...

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Agree with Torsten, we performed upgrade from 9.2.1 to 9.3 - it was uninstalled automatically byt 9.3 installer, server rebooted and continued after boot, no problem yet, some nice graphical improvments detected... :)

Re: Command View EVA upgrade or uninstall/install?

I have a question to follow up on that. My company has an EVA4100, and I tested the upgrade of CommandView 10 in place of 9.01 on its Management Server. We  currently use an EVA6100 and another management server to manage it. This is a production environment SAN, and it is functioning correctly.After the upgrade on the old management server CommandView software, I had to un-initiate it from our newer EVA CommandView console to add it to the new CommandView.

 

My question: After this installation of CommandView 10 on the new SAN server, and reboot of the EVA6100 server, when I attempt to log back in to the new CommandView, will all of my connections, drives, LUNS, etc be affected in any way? Or is this a pretty seamless process?

 

Thanks!

Yes, upgrading command view will not affect existing lun/disk/connections etc.
