Best way to migrate a project to latest mango Version


  • Hy,
    I would want to try migration of a project from Mango 2.8.4 to latest Mango version,
    which way is the best for such migration:

    1. using Mango upgrade functionality
    2. starting directly from latest Mango and import all data sources
    3. I don't if it works to insert old mah2.h2.db into latest Mango

    Antonio


  • I believe both methods 1 and 3 will work. i wouldn't recommend method 2. Using the mango functionality will be the easiest. You will need to upgrade to version 2.8.8 first and then you'll be able to do a major update.


  • @etantonio Do you have any custom dashboards / pages?

    #1 and #3 are essentially the same approach, if you copy an old DB file into a new Mango (that hasn't been started, i.e. all the modules are still zipped) then start it, it will do essentially the same upgrade process.

    I would stick with approach #1 as it the Mango upgrade process will do additional things such as making sure you upgrade to 2.8.8 before you upgrade to the 3.x etc.


  • Keep in mind if you have a paid license you will need to contact us to purchase a new license for Mango v3. I would recommend doing this before upgrading so you have it ready to go.


  • Thanks for your answer,
    I would want if possible to test it before to buy a license also for latest Mango.
    Actually we are using h2 and testing mysql, I'm interested to test no-sql and I think could be better to start from mango v3.x.x


  • Yes it is possible to test. It will run for 8 hours with up to 300 data points for free, for use in personal, education or non-commercial purposes. If you need more testing than that permits, we grant trial licenses upon request. Email support@infiniteautomation.com with the instance's GUID, and the period of time you would like the trial to be.
