Baan: BaanIVb2 - DB: Oracle 7.3 - OS: Unix 11
upgrade b2 to c4 OR new install of c4 ?

Just wanted some feeddback from some of you that have migrated to BaanIVc4.

We have a new server with a new OS HP Unix ver 11.00
The Oracle instance and data is already on the new server

My two options are:

1) copy over the BaanIVb2 application and dict / re-liscense and install new porting set. Then upgrade to BaanIVc4 and use the supplied data conversion tools for the new table structures in c4.

2) Install the BaanIVc4 new install, migrate the custom comps from the old server to the new server. How do you resolve the data issue ? the data that is present via Oracle would not map to the data definitions in c4 ?

Which is the prefered option 1 or 2 ? And how would you resolve the data definition issue in option 2 ?

I would personally recommend installing a new version of Baan IVc4. You said you are on a new server, there is no need to bring all you old garbage over.

There are many different ways to bring the data over. We have done this numerous time for customers.

Baan: IV, LN6.1 - DB: --- - OS: ---
There are correction programs that have to be run when converting from IVb to IVc. (The data dictionary of the integration tables changed in a matter that makes this necessary.) There is a more or less defined standard procedure on how to do such a migration. I think letting this do a consulting company which has done it before i(nstead of trying to do it yourself for the fiorst time) would be the safer way here.

Baan: BaanIVc4, BaanERP 5.0, ERP LN6.1 - DB: Oracle, informix, DB400 - OS: unix, As400, windows 2003

Use a fresh install of Baan IV c4 and migrate the data is the best option
We have do this for a migration BaanIV c2 ==> BaanIV c4 but the principle should be the same

a) create a temporary package combination in c4 (TEMPB2)
b) this create a data dictionnary (in $BSE/dict/ddTEMPB2)
c) copy in this library the b2 dictionnary
d) create the company defintion and attach it to this temporary package combination
e) install a copy of your b2 data
f) you should also have your package combination in c4 (LIVE,OPER what you want)
g) change company VRC from temporary package to this c4 package ==> this should reorganize your tables
h) don't forget to read the migration stuff done by baan. AFAIK ther are some finance tables that need to be empty.
i) test and when all is ok redo the same with your live data
