In This Section:
This chapter describes the upgrade process for EPM System products. To upgrade EPM System products to Release 18.104.22.168, you deploy Release 22.214.171.124 software in a new location and move applications and data to the new deployment.
Upgrading does not apply to moving from Release 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 to Release 184.108.40.206. Use the “Apply Maintenance Release” option in EPM System Installer instead. See Maintenance Release Installation Checklist. When you apply the maintenance release, you need not follow the upgrade procedures described in this chapter.
For most clients, if you are upgrading from an earlier release of an EPM System client component, you must uninstall the earlier release before you install the new release. No configuration is required. If you have an earlier release of Financial Reporting Studio, see Maintenance Release Installation Prerequisites for additional requirements.
