Introduction

In most cases, the DTP installer automatically handles all upgrade processes, but you should refer to the Upgrade Scenarios section to verify your upgrade path. 

Before upgrading from previous versions of DTP, make sure that your system meets the system requirements.

The installer automatically backs up your data as part of the upgrade process, but you can manually back up your system as an extra precaution.

Basic Upgrade 

Follow these instructions if one of the following conditions apply:

  • You are upgrading from 5.4.0 or later with or without DTP Enterprise Pack, or
  • you are upgrading from 5.0.0 - 5.3.3 without DTP Enterprise Pack

Windows

  1. Stop all Parasoft services, including DTP Enterprise Pack if applicable. See Stopping DTP Services
  2. Run the installer and choose the Reinstall DTP option when prompted. The DTP installer automatically handles all upgrade processes. 
  3. Click Finish to complete installation and start DTP and Enterprise Pack (if installed) processes.

If you are upgrading from DTP 5.4.2 or older, you can remove the GRS database as an optional step (see the DTP 5.4.3 release notes for additional information). Refer to the documentation for your database server software for instructions on how to delete the database.

If you did not install Enterprise Pack during the initial DTP installation process, you can re-run the latest DTP installer to install DTP Enterprise Pack at any time. 

Linux

Follow these instructions if you are upgrading from the most recent version of DTP and DTP Enterprise Pack:

  1. Open a command prompt and navigate to the current DTP installation.
  2. Run the dtpconsole script stop all Parasoft services, including DTP Enterprise Pack if applicable. See Stopping DTP Services.
  3. Run the DTP installation script with the -u option:
  4. ./DTP.sh -u <DTP_INSTALL>
    where DTP_HOME is the installation directory of the current installation.

    You must type the full, non-relative path.

    Example: /home/parasoft/dtp but not ./parasoft/dtp

    If you are installing the DTP distribution that includes an embedded database server, the installer will confirm the status of the database server service.

  5. The installer will check the specified DTP installation directory for DTP Enterprise Pack. If Enterprise Pack is detected, you will be prompted to either remove or update the pack. If Enterprise Pack is not detected, you will be prompted to install it in the <DTP_INSTALL>/dtpservices directory. 

  6. When the DTP.sh script finishes, run dtpconsole.sh to start DTP and Data Collector. If you are installing the DTP distribution that includes an embedded database server, services will start automatically and you can immediately begin using DTP. 

  7. Navigate to the <DTP_INSTALL>/dtpservices directory and run the dtpservices.sh script with the start argument to start Enterprise Pack. 

    ./dtpservices.sh start

If you are upgrading from DTP 5.4.2 or older, you can remove the GRS database as an optional step (see the DTP 5.4.3 release notes for additional information). Refer to the documentation for your database server software for instructions on how to delete the database.

If you did not install Enterprise Pack during the initial DTP installation process, you can re-run the latest DTP installer to install DTP Enterprise Pack at any time. 

5.3.2 - 5.3.3 with Enterprise Pack

Follow these instructions if the following conditions apply:

  • You are upgrading to the most recent version of DTP
  • You are upgrading with DTP Enterprise Pack

Windows

  1. Stop Parasoft services. See Stopping DTP Services for instructions.
  2. Open a command prompt and navigate to the current (older) Enterprise Pack installation directory.
  3. Run the dtpservices.bat stop  command to stop DTP Enterprise Pack.
  4. Run the latest DTP installer and follow the prompts until the upgrade is complete. See New DTP Installations.

    DTP Enterprise Pack will be installed in the <DTP_HOME>/dtpservices directory as a result of the upgrade process. The installer will automatically backup and restore installed in this directory Enterprise Pack. If the Enterprise Pack you are upgrading from is installed in another location, you should migrate Enterprise Pack to the <DTP_HOME>/dtpservices directory. Also see Integration with DTP Enterprise Pack.

  5. By default, the Installation Complete dialog prompts you to start DTP services and DTP Enterprise Pack. Disable all services to prevent them from starting automatically.
  6. Click Finish and open a command prompt and navigate to the <DTP_HOME>/dtpservices directory.
  7. Run the following command to create a backup archive:

    dtpservices.bat backup --target <path to old Enterprise Pack directory> 


    The back up archive will be save to the parent directory specified with the
    --target command. This process may take several minutes to complete.
     
  8. Run the dtpservices.bat restore --src <path to backup archive> command.
  9. Start DTP services. See Starting DTP Services for instructions.

You can remove the GRS database as an optional step (see the DTP 5.4.3 release notes for additional information). Refer to the documentation for your database server software for instructions on how to delete the database.

If you did not install Enterprise Pack during the initial DTP installation process, you can re-run the latest DTP installer and repeat the preceding steps to install DTP Enterprise Pack at any time.

Upgrading the Database Structure

Report Center verifies the database structure when you log in with administrator credentials after upgrading. You may be prompted to update the database.

 After the initial installation, the default administrator user/password was admin/admin. However, this might have been changed when your Report Center was customized.

To upgrade the database structure, following these steps:

  1. Click Execute to run the database schema upgrade process. A message is displayed when it is finished. Report Center is ready to use.
  2. Verify that Report Center and Project Center functionality and port numbers were preserved. 

     All customization settings that were set in DTP_HOME/grs/config/*.xml files are preserved during the Report Center upgrade process.

  3. Check the conf_update.log file in the DTP_HOME/logs/ directory to verify that the configuration updated successfully.
