Question:

Upgrade Question on going from v12.0 to v12.1.  Can I upgrade only the CA Output Management Web Viewer to v12.1 but not upgrade Tomcat or Java JVM?

 

Answer:

No. There is no migration path from 12.0 to 12.1 except being able to use the same database or a copy of it.  

  • Make copies of your properties files. 
  • Uninstall 12.0. 
  • Install the JAVA JRE - 1.8 is recommended. Please note that earlier versions of JAVA have vulnerabilities.
  • Install 12.1 which will include a new version of Tomcat. Bring up Tomcat after the install to deploy the product. 
  • After configuring the product apply the latest cumulative maintenance build and RO91790 UPDATE APACHE TOMCAT TO 8.5.4
