Schema next tables regenerated during upgrade

When upgrading DSA environments both on Windows and Linux systems to BigFix Version 9.5 Patch 13 from older Versions, the schema next tables, used by the WebUI component, are regenerated starting from the legacy database tables if the replication process did not complete successfully.

This behavior affects only the DSA environments on which you enabled the DisableReplicationOfNextTables registry setting (on Windows) or the DisableReplicationOfNextTables configuration setting (on Linux). This setting prevents the replication of the schema next tables in your environment.

Before the upgrade

If you enabled the DisableReplicationOfNextTables registry setting (on Windows) or the DisableReplicationOfNextTables configuration setting (on Linux), to save the amount of time required by the schema next tables regeneration, it is strongly recommended that you perform a clean up of the environment using the BigFix Administration Tool tab named Clean Up. For details, see Clean Up. This operation will reduce the amount of time required for the upgrade.

After the upgrade

The DisableReplicationOfNextTables registry/configuration setting is automatically disabled.
