Upgrading the databases to the current release

This section describes how to upgrade the Discover databases to the latest version of Discover.

Depending on how databases are deployed in your Discover environment, you may choose to upgrade the databases inline with upgrading its host server or after you complete your upgrade of the Report Server.

  • If you have any questions about the process or the steps that are required to upgrade your Discover solution, contact Discover support.
  • It is possible to upgrade your Discover software and migrate only your event and alert definitions into a new database.
  • During an upgrade, the Database Manger automatically executes the DCEventManager.exe utility. You can run the DCEventManager.exe utility on the same set of definitions for the same version of the software.
  • By default, if the Initialize Configuration checkbox is selected, we recommend you to upgrade all the databases immediately.
  • If you want to upgrade the databases one after the other, after running the DiscoverDatabaseManager.exe utility, access Mode > Data Management and run Initialize Configuration.
