Upgrade Guide CM MatchPoint 6.1 to 6.5

 

1. INI-Settings

 
With the Release 6.5 we are distributing new INI-Files for CM MatchPoint.
To keep the connection parameter,
  •  Copy only the remote section of the existing INI-files ot the new INI-file, set TCPIP Dialog=1
  •  Copy all the remote sections for additional IBM i Servers to the INI-File (Section name = Server Name) (Alternatively, you can press 'Update INI' from the 'Edit Environment'-Panel
 
 

2. Dispatcher Start Program

 
This new version uses JAVA Dispatcher, for AS400 task if you have a customized start program for the dispatcher in your MPCOM library, copy this program/command from the backup (created by the installation process) to the new MPCOM library
 
 

3. User Defined Processes (Server)

 
IF you have customized Server processes, which are stored in the MPPGM library, copy these programs from the backup (created by the installation process) to the new MPPGM library (including the Source Files!)
 
 

4. MatchPoint Data

 
There is no new data to enter after the upgrade. The existing data will be migrated from AS400 to SQL server after the installation.
Please refer to the 'What's New'-Document to check for new control parameters that can be used in Version 6.5
 
Your existing MatchPoint data will be migrated to the new release.
