Network Advisor upgrade from 12.2.0 to 14.0.0 - Migration path

Does anybody know the right location path for data migration during upgrade BNA from 12.2.0 to 14.0.0?

Many thanks in advance.

Are you doing a migration on the same server?

It should detect the previous version. If it doesn't, you can manually specify the path. It will be whatever the previous install path was.

First of, you have to have 12.3.0 or later to migrate to 14.0.0.

 

I am on 12.4.4 but not able to migrate since 14.0.0 does not detect the 12.4.4 installation. So there is a bug in 14.0.0 since it does not detect the previous installation.

 

Even if I choose: "C:\Program Files\HP B-series SAN Network Advisor 12.4.4" that is the folder where 12.4.4 is running.

12.4.4 -> 14.0.0 is not a supported migration path. You can migrate from earlier 12.4.x releases, but not 12.4.4. 

 

12.4.4 & 14.0.0 were release near-simultaneously, and 12.4.4 contains fixes not in 14.0.0, while 14.0.0 contains some new features.

 

You will be able to upgrade from 12.4.4 to future 14.x releases.

It is certainly less than ideal. Just sometimes the way things work out with development branches. You won't be orphaned on 12.4.4 though - there will be an upgrade path.

FYI, 14.0.1 has been released, which supports upgrading from 12.4.4.

Is it GA already? in my.brocade.com under downloads / management software I only find 14.0.0 under 14.0.x category.

According to the Brocade Network Advisor  14.0.1 GA Release Notes v1.1 , migration from 12.4.4 is still not a valid upgrade path.  Does anyone have any news on when we can expect a version that will support the upgrade from 12.4.4?  Thanks Smiley Happy
