Hi,

 

We are upgrading 4.6.11 to 5.3. During this upgradation, we need to migrate the existing process instance also.

 

Can we backup the K2 Database from 4.611 and restore in 5.3 and point that old database for new k2 5.3 server installation in new environment?

 

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Samy

Hello  @ccts


 


After the upgrade process please take a look at this kb for K2 Database MoveMigrate (the KB article provides a step by step guide on restoring or moving a K2 database succsessfully.) : https://help.k2.com/support-services/kbt135736?z=*personal%20details%20removed*42


 


Please note for a sript to run (script to be found on the link i sent) you will need a master key password, to obtain this master key password you will need to log a support ticket requesting the password.
