I have a functioning ES2 development environment that I want to upgrade to ES4. I am also moving to a new server (Windows 2008 R2 and SQL 2008 R2).
Currently, I'm running:
JBoss [EAP] 4.2.0.GA_CP01
MS SQL 2005
I've read some docs, but am still confused. I'm assuming out-of-place upgrade, but should I try to Upgrade from ES2 or just do a fresh install then copy GDS and database over? Also, what configuration files can I copy over (if any)?
Any recommendations or links would be appreciated.
Once you have decided on your target environment, you might choose to stay on the same machine or move to a different machine. In both these cases your upgrade will be out-of-place since JBoss 4.2.0 is not supported in LiveCycle ES4.
If you decide to stay on the same machine, LiveCycle ES4 Installer and LCM would detect the presence of your existing LiveCycle ES2 installation and will guide you accordinly.
However, if you decide to move to another machine you might have to copy the following over to the new machine:
1) Global Document Storage (GDS) directory and it's contents
2) Content Storage (lccs_data) directory and it's contents if you are using Content Services
3) Watched Folder contents
4) Any custom fonts
5) Any other custom files/folders specific to your LiveCycle ES2 installation
