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