Rollback process for upgrade of SQLdm


I want to upgrade SQLdm from 10.2 to 10.3, but haven't done a SQLdm upgrade before. The change management process requires me to document the rollback process.

Obviously I would backup the repository database beforehand but what about the software elements, dlls, registry etc? Unfortunately a VM snapshot isn't really an option because of size.

Is there a defined rollback process for this?

Many thanks,

  • You'll just need a backup of the repository database and the installation kit for the older version.

    After upgrading, if you want to roll back, you'll simply need to:

    1. Uninstall SQLDM
    2. Restore the backup of the database while it was still the older version.
    3. Install the older version of SQLDM, while pointing to the newly restored copy of the repository database.
