Can please help me clarify the steps for performing the upgrade from 2.5.29 to 4.5.5? I have read the documentation several times but I'm not clear as to how the existing 2.5.29 database will get updated.
This is how I think the process goes:
- Install the initial 4.5.5 package on the target.
- Use the export.jar utility to bring over the 2.5.29 jiveHome to the new jive home set in jive.instance.home.
- This is where I'm stuck. How do I get to the Admin Console that will perform the database upgrade? If I point to the initial 4.5.5 instance how does it know that it's going to do an upgrade at this point? Does it use the transferred jiveHome to know this?
