Before proceeding to the next phase of the upgrade, be sure that you have prepared a current, comprehensive test plan. The goal of a test plan is to confirm that all your current Identity Manager application functionality remains intact through the upgrade process.
If you have an existing test plan, read Review Your Existing Test Plan.
If you have not a prepared test plan, create one now using the guidelines described in Create a Test Plan.
Does your existing test plan address everything that you want to test? Is it up-to-date? Is it specific? If not, you must revise your test plan appropriately.
If you are particularly concerned with the performance of a particular set of functions or with items such as the amount of system memory or database space the Identity Manager application consumes, then be sure that your test plan also measures these items.
After upgrading the Identity Manager product or after making any significant change to your Identity Manager configurations or customizations, be sure to retest your Identity Manager application.
You must create a test plan if you do not already have one prepared for your Identity Manager application. A generic test plan includes:
