You need to have that license at hand before you continue with the next steps.
Please also consider that you can only request licenses from Intland Software from Monday through Friday, 8:00 - 17:00 GMT+2, and that processing a license request may take hours up to several days!
So do not shut down your live production system or schedule to upgrade overnight or during the weekend until you already have a license for the new system.
To install the new license:
Login codeBeamer with System Admin and open System Admin / License page.
Click on Edit License button and insert the new License and Save
Step 4. Runtime Parameters
If you had customized OLD-CB runtime variables, e.g. special JVM, HEAPSIZE, etc., then you should copy these settings from the OLD_CB start script to the NEW-CB start script.
Unix/Linux/Mac OS X
Windows (No Service)
For changes in ~/NEW-CB/tomcat/bin/cbservice.bat to take effect, you must run the following command manually afterwards
cbservice codebeamer codebeamer
Step 5. Check general.xml
Check your general.xml, if a path refer to the OLD-CB change it to NEW-CB.
Step 6. Start
Start the NEW-CB server. The first time the codeBeamer server is started, the database schema will be upgraded to version NEW-CB. Depending on which version you're upgrading from, and the amount of data in your database, the first startup of the NEW-CB server might take up to 10-120 min, because the database scheme will be updated in the background (the database process might use a lot of CPU).
Do not shutdown or kill the NEW-CB server as long as the database upgrade is in progress, otherwise the database might be corrupted.
