Introduction

Upgrading from Concerto directly to the latest version of DTP is not supported. You must upgrade to DTP 5.4.0 prior to upgrading to the latest version.

The DTP installer (Windows) and installation script (Linux) perform most migration processes without additional action, but some tasks must be performed manually. This chapter describes how to run the installer/script and how to perform the manual processes necessary for accessing data that was previously available in Concerto. 

Concerto data cannot be viewed in DTP

DTP is optimized to work with data sent by the 10.x series of Jtest, C++test, and dotTEST, as well as functional test data sent by SOAtest 9.10.x. The 9.x series of Jtest, C++test, and dotTEST generate data that isn't compatible with DTP 5.3.3 and later and can not be viewed in widgets and reports.

Prerequisites

Before migrating to DTP from Concerto, make sure you read the following chapters and make all necessary adjustments:

Windows 

  1. Stop Parasoft services. See Stopping Concerto Services.
  2. Run the DTP 5.4.0 installation file.
  3. Accept the license agreement when prompted.
  4. Choose installation directory and set the short-cut option when prompted. By default, DTP installs in the C:\Parasoft\DTP directory. 
  5. Review the installation settings and click Install when prompted. 

  6. A dialog will guide you through the process of uninstalling Concerto. 

    • Your files will be migrated to DTP. 
    • You may be prompted to delete data related to Concerto. Choosing Yes deletes everything in the Concerto installation directory. Data not stored in the directory, such as database content, is unaffected. 
    • Configuration files are copied to DTP during the installation prior to deleting Concerto files, but you should make sure that you’ve backed up your Concerto installation as a precaution.
  7. Choose Remove when prompted to Uninstall Concerto.
  8. By default, all DTP services except for DTP Enterprise Pack (if selected in step 5) will start after upgrading. You will need to stop DTP services prior to continuing the upgrade path
  9. Run the latest DTP installer and following the prompts until the upgrade is complete.
  10. Restart DTP services.    

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

Linux

  1. Stop Parasoft services. See Stopping DTP Services.
  2. Run the DTP 5.4.0 installation script with the -u option:

    ./DTP.sh -u DTP_HOME where DTP_HOME is the installation directory of the current Concerto installation.

    You must type the full, non-relative path.

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

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

  3. The installer will prompt you to install DTP Enterprise Pack in the [DTP_INSTALL]/dtpservices directory.  If you want to install Parasoft DTP Enterprise Pack, choose [y] and press Enter when prompted. If you choose to install DTP Enterprise Pack, you will need to upgrade to DTP 5.4.1 before upgrading to the latest version.
  4. When the DTP.sh script finishes, run the installation script for the latest version of DTP. 
  5. When the installation 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.

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

Updating the Database

DTP introduces the new DTP database schema for Report Center. After performing the migration from Concerto to DTP, follow the instructions in Installing MySQL Database Server for Windows to create this new schema.
