Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Upgrade

Task 11: Upgrade Your QA Environment

The process for upgrading your QA environment is very similar to the process described in Task 6: Upgrade Your Development Environment.

Other than a few different parameter values, such as host names and connection information, your procedure for updating your QA environment must contain exactly the same steps as your procedure for upgrading the Test environment.

Because your QA environment is supposed to replicate the Production environment as closely as possible, you must monitor the upgrade closely for any errors caused by data values, data volumes, or platform considerations that were not fully tested in the Test environment.

To help you plan the final phase of your upgrade, upgrading your Production environment, carefully measure how long it takes you to execute various steps in your upgrade procedure.
