Hi, We are upgrading the application from 10.2 to 10.5.2 with platform 18.104.22.168. we have upgraded the platform to 22.214.171.124 and started upgrading the application from 10.2 to 10.5.2 in incremental order (10.3, 10.3.1..... till 10.5.2). To minimize the outage and complexity during production implementation, we have been suggested to take a final OM Package after completing the 10.5.2 deployment and apply all the customizations which might have been impacted with the upgrade. This final OM Package will contain all the changes from 10.2 to 10.5.2. Our question is on the Patch helpers where can we run all the patch helpers (from 10.3 to 10.5.2 in order) after importing the final OM Package?
Also we are running the Varchar to Numeric script before importing the app. upgrade packages. This script is taking long time (it took almost a day in 2 test environments) but when we tried in another environment its running for more than 2 days and still didn't get executed. Is it normal for this script to run like that or will it be an issue? There are no differences between the environments.
Your suggestions/solution is highly appreciated.
