Some user report issue and difficult when try to Upgrade / Migrate BNA from 12.4.x to 14.0.1
You can consider this DOC as a simple Upgrade/ Migration How-To Guide, however rather deals with a simple demonstration.
Additional I suggest to refer to in BNA Installation and Migration Guide.
In this example, I made Upgrade from BNA 12.4.4 to 14.0.1
show NA 12.4.4 before starting Upgrade to 14.0.1
Launch the Setup Installer, Installing Network Advisor 14.0.1 start.
As soon installation is completed click "Done"
"Copy Data and Settings from previous releases" appear with a question:
"Do you want to copy data and settings (migrate)?"
Make sure is pointed to "Yes, from the following location" and a correct Old BNA path/folder is selected, then click "Next" to continue.
"Resource Validation and Data Migration" begin, click "Start"
....then click "Next"
Choice "Installation Type", in this example I've simple selected due Hardware Limitation on my old
Lenovo ThinkPad T510 "Network Advisor - Professional" and click "Next"
Select and point to Built-In or External FTP or SCP / SFTP Server you want to use and click "Next"
in "Server IP Configuration" you can selected a "Preferred Address" or leave by default at "Any"
If the old BNA 12.4.x Installation point to a specific IP Address, is suggested to select in Preferred Address Drag-Drop
correct IP Address
"Resource Configuration and Validation" window opened, make sure you select correct Ports.
Is reccommended to use same Ports as assigned in the old BNA Installation, otherwise the Services failed.
The click "Next"
This step is Optional
In some circumstance if any Firewall is Enable, you get a Java related Windows Security Alert.
Enable "Private networks,...." and click the Buttons Allow access
"Product Improvement Program" opened, you can decided to Partecipate or no. By default is set as "No, thank you"
"Server Configuration Summary" started, then click "Next"
"Start Server" opened, make sure "Start Client" is selected and then click "Finish"
Upgrade finish successful, DB is Migrate, Server Start, and Partial Uninstall is started.
window 14.0.1 Log In
"About Network Advisor 14.0.1"
now you are on BNA version 14.0.1
Thank you for the steps to upgrade.
What things should be done to protect the performance history and settings? Is there a pre-upgrade check sheet?
Great Walkthru - Thanks a bunch
