Upgrade and patch Netezza Performance Server systems that have stored procedures

There are no special requirements or procedures necessary to preserve any stored procedures during an upgrade to a new release. The stored procedures continue to operate in the same manner on the upgraded system as on the previous release.

If the upgrade release introduces any new features or changes that can affect the operation of stored procedures, Netezza Performance Server describes the changes in the release notes. Before you install any new release or service pack, review the release notes to familiarize yourself with any new features, changes, fixes, and known issues for that release. Make sure that you have a recent backup of your Netezza Performance Server system before you upgrade the system.
