Pinned topic Cant install Maximo 7 after Maximo 6 upgrade

‏2011-03-28T23:53:08Z |
Hello:
First of all thanks for the time of anyone who answers... thanks.

Here is the thing:
After I upgraded to Maximo 6 I tried to install the Maximo 7 Upgrade files but the installer (which i downloaded from passport advantage) throws this error.

CTGIN2398E: An existing maximo db version is not valid for this installer. Required minimum maximo db version is 7100

and I ran updatedb.bat after I installed Maximo 6.2.7 Fix Pack succesfully.

THe info when i Run version.bat:
MAXIMO Application Server 6.2.7 Build 20100824-1415 DB Build V600-768,
Upgrade 6.5.01 Build BUILD DB Build V600-0

    Hi,

    You have to migrate your maximo database only :
    • install Maximo 7 as a standalone instance (not an update)
    • change your maximo.properties to use the maximo 6.2.7 database instance
    • run <MAM7_ROOT>/tools/maximo/upgradeui.bat
    3 Steps :
    - first the integrity check of your current v6.2.7 instance
    - then the preparation of the migration
    - finally the upgrade to Maximo v7.1
    • Run updatedb.bat to update to the last installed release.

    When running upgradeui, take care to fix all errors you get, and all the warning you can (warning are sometimes problematics when migrating, sometimes it's not).

    Hope this will help

      Well I am getting into the same problem, but the solution that you gave are not for the installation problem. What will be the solution to resolve the db version issue during installation of MAM 7.1 against a Max 6.2.7 db ? and this is somehow involves the MAXVARS Table.

      Upgraded from 5.2 to 6.2.7 now I need to install MAM 7.1 and do the upgrade to my db to 7.1.1.8 level.

      Whoever have a chance please give us your thoughts.

      Thanks
      Samawa

        Samawa,

        I know it has been few months. But I was wondering if you were able to fix this issue. What did you do to fix the error? We are also running in to the same issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

        Thanks

      This is a PDF from Oct 2011

      Upgrade Guide
      IBM Maximo 6 to Version 7 Products

      See the attachment for the initial upgrade tasks.

      Installing version 7 products (page 7): You install version 7 products first because the upgrade program uses version 7 information and the upgrade utilities are included with the version 7 product.

    I thought you needed to be on Maximo 6.2.8 before you can upgrade to Maximo 7.1.1.5?

    The reason Horfee is saying you need a standalone install of Maximo 7.1 is to be able to access the upgradeui.bat... Just unzipping the harrier.zip WILL NOT work because there are other packages like Common PMP the Maximo 7.1 launchpad install that unzipping harrier.zip will not perform. I am in the same situation, but I rather avoid having to make a standalone install...
