Post upgrade steps

Please ensure there are no unsent metrics left in the queue before PowerConnect jobs are started again (after SPAM import step). Following options need to be considered: 

  • Stop Extractor job and wait until all metrics are sent before the upgrade is actually started. 

  • Stop all jobs and execute ‘Goto->Troubleshooting->Truncate cluster’ menu option to cleanup all metrics in the queue.

!Important notes:

  • Transport with authorization objects is updated in this version and needs to be re-imported.

  • User roles are updated in this release and should be re-imported after upgrade.

Known issues:

  • SM37 - In case single job step has multiple spools, not all of them are collected (not specific to current release).

  • SM19 - Filter details are not collected in S4/HANA systems (not specific to current release).
