EtaPRO 10.3 - What to Know Before Upgrading
EtaPRO™ Version 10.3 introduces several changes that you should be aware of prior to upgrading. Please review the entire document (Upgrading EtaPRO 10.3) and referenced supplements and contact EtaPRO Support with any questions before beginning the upgrade!
If, after reviewing the upgrade document and warnings below, you would prefer to contract EtaPRO Support to complete the upgrade, please contact us at email@example.com or 716.799.1077)
Please note that EtaPRO 10.3 is currently in "Release Candidate" stage due to pending documentation updates. We do not expect any significant changes to the software itself - only to the documentation, such as the help files.
Pre-upgrade warnings are summarized as follows:
Before upgrading, make a backup of your configuration databases. During the EtaPRO 10.3 upgrade process, updates made to your configuration databases are not backward compatible. Refer to the knowledge base article here: Scheduling EtaPRO 10.x Backup Tasks
EtaPRO 10.3 uses the Microsoft® .NET Framework Version 4.6.1. Please see hardware and software prerequisites in the Upgrading EtaPRO 10.3 document. If your EtaPRO server is still using Windows 2003 and earlier, you will not be able to upgrade.
EtaPRO 10.3 requires a new product license key. Before uninstalling your current version of EtaPRO, please contact GP Strategies for a new license key (firstname.lastname@example.org or 716.799.1077).
EtaPRO 10.3 requires an EPArchive™ database even if you are not storing historical data in EPArchive. Please download a blank database from the support site or create a blank Archive database following the directions in the Upgrading EtaPRO 10.3 document.
When you upgrade to EtaPRO 10.3, all historical data stored in your existing APR Asset database will be automatically moved to your EPArchive database. This process can take a significant amount of time. How long will depend on the number of EtaPRO APR™ assets you have, how long they been in service, etc. In general, the process can take many hours. You should plan to do the upgrade during a period when availability of your system is not critical.
Data acquisition has gone through a major change. All data is now acquired using stand-alone EtaPRO Data Interfaces. Your system will be automatically upgraded to use the new interfaces. It is suggested that you review the EtaPRO Data Interface Installation and Commissioning Guide prior to upgrading.
