To Run the Upgrade Wizard:

The first Upgrade Wizard dialog is displayed.

2. Type the user name and password you use when connecting to the database.
3. From the pull down list in the RDBMS field, choose the RDBMS type you are connecting to.

Note that the RDBMS type you specify here must be the same as the type you specified when you installed the USoft Developer Series.

4. In the Database field, specify the string you use to identify the database to which you are connecting (sometimes known as a connect string). For Oracle over SQL*Net V2, for example, this would be of the form:


See your RDBMS documentation set for more information

5. Press Next to continue. The second dialog is then displayed.

6. Choose whether you want to upgrade the entire repository or just the authorization tables. You can also choose to upgrade BenchMark only; this may be useful, for example, if you run BenchMark from a different repository, or under a different user to the main application.
7. Click Next to continue. A confirmation dialog is displayed.
8. Click Finish to start the automated upgrade. Note that this may take some time.


Once set up and started, the Upgrade Wizard will take some time to complete all the tasks it has to perform. During this time, no user intervention is required. All actions performed, and exceptions found, are recorded in a log file.
