KB 087 – Upgrade SP 5.09 to SP 6.00

Please follow steps below to upgrade the PowerConnect from SP 5.09 to SP 6.00:

  • Stop collector job;
  • Wait until all pending metrics are sent to Splunk;
  • Stop all jobs;
  • Clean-up all metric tables using the Goto->Truncate cluster functionality. This is needed, since the metric serialization approach is changed, and it might cause issues once uploading is started after upgrade;
  • Upgrade SP 5.09 to SP 6.00

  • Use SPAM to apply 5.10;
  • Use SAINT to upgrade to 6.0;
  • Transport the hotfixes (STMS) for SP 6.00 if any shared;
  • Activate BC set /BNWVS/BCSET_500 (Tcode=SCPR20)
  • Start PowerConnect Background jobs.
