Upgrading is what you do when you want a new PMC release on your existing farm. If you are interested in migrating from one version of SharePoint to another version (i.e., SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 or SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013), please see the topics under Migrating to a new SharePoint version….
NOTE: Only PMC R3.0 or R3.5 can be upgraded directly to PM Central 4.x release (4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3) If you have an earlier release, you will need to upgrade to R3.0 or R3.5 before upgrading to R4.x.
To upgrade to PM Central 4.3 follow these steps:
|Part A: Upgrade PM Central Core Components|
|1.||Before starting the PM Central upgrade review the best practices for a successful install|
|2.||Restart the SharePoint Timer Service and SharePoint Administrative Services on any server in the farm running the Microsoft Foundation Web Application service. This will ensure files that need to be updated are not locked by these services|
|3.||From the PM Central Installer, select the Project Management Central Components, then click Install
Important: Both of the core components, Project Management Central and Bamboo PM Central Administration Pages will need to be installed before you move on to Part B of the upgrade process.
|4.||Click through the Systems Check and from the Repair, Remove or Install screen, click Upgrade/Repair Existing and Install New|
Review the final screen to confirm that all PM Central components were upgraded successfully.
|Part B: Upgrade your existing PM Central sites|
|1.||Following the installation of the Project Management Central core component, PM Central sites will display the following message indicating that the existing sites need to be upgraded.
|3.||Restart the SharePoint Timer Service, to prepare for the site upgrade.
|4.||Use the drop down to select the web application that houses PM Central Sites, then click Upgrade
|5.||The amount of time needed for the upgrade will depend on the number of sites being upgraded.|
