Upgrade Guidelines

Observe the following guidelines:
  • You must plan the upgrade activity during a planned maintenance window.
  • Before you perform any upgrade procedure, create backup copies of Connect:Direct Web Services database and system files. For details see, Upgrading Guidelines.
  • A Connect:Direct user cannot perform any operation on IBM Connect:Direct Web Services during the upgrade process.
    Note: IBM Connect:Direct Web Services will restart during this process. It is recommended that you stop any instance of Web Services, if running.

    Do not stop the execution of the Postgres instance while upgrading. If this happens, the existing data in the previous Postgres instance will be lost.
