Pinned topic Feature Level 6 upgrade

‏2012-08-27T10:10:30Z |
Hi fellows,

I just want to share my experiences with upgrading the feature level from 5 to 6 in a MultiSite environment.

We did the chflevel -family on a CC 8.0.0.3 server.
This update packet can't be imported into VOBs hosted on a 7.1.2.5 and 7.1.2.7 ClearCase server.

I also tested the other way round from 7.1.2.4 to 8.0.0.3 and it also failed.

IBM confirmed this defect.
The only way to solve this, is to update the server to the same version.
I don't know if IBM will send an alert to the users.

So if you plan to update the feature level to 6, check with a testt VOB if this will work in your environment.

greetings georg.

    IBM says in technote that 7.1.2.2 is FL 6 by default, but with 7.1.2.6, I still see 5 as default FL. There is something wrong in the documentation !?

    So when you say 'default' FL is 5, do you mean the feature level of your existing VOBs, or one you just created? Existing VOBs will not change until you do so manually, and will only do so when all replica sites of that VOB are upgraded.
