Question:

I'm preparing to upgrade IDMS from 17.0 SP1. Are there any problems going to 19.0 INC00?

Answer:

There are no problems upgrading from IDMS 17.0 SP1 to 19.0 directly without having to upgrade to IDMS release 18.0 or 18.5. 

In the 19.0 IDMSR190.CAISAG.CONFIG Install library; member VARBLIST has a parameter which identifies specifically which release you are upgrading from.

FROM#REL = 18.0 From which release are you upgrading? 
* (12.0, 14.0, 14.1, 15.0, 16.0, 17.0 or 18.0) 

We do recommend that you read up on each release in the 18.0, 18.5 and 19.0 Release Notes 
Guides as there are quite a number of install changes involved. 

Also we have a number of Knowledge Base articles on the 18.0 installation that can prepare 
you for some of these new IDMS installation changes.
