License

You need to submit a ticket to Everest Support requesting a new Everest license for the version being upgraded to. In the ticket specify the Company name and Everest version. In case if you have more than one Everest company – you also need to specify the MAC address of the application server where the new Everest version will be installed.

Database upgrade procedure

  1. To upgrade Everest, install a fresh upgrade version somewhere different than the production server.
  2. Create a new company on the new server with the same legal information as the old production one.
  3. Create a company back up on the production server and copy the latest .bak file from the production server to a new server.
  4. Restore it on the new server. This means it has all your production database information including credentials.
  5. After that when you try to log in, a database upgrade wizard will pop up automatically.
