Migrating from the 32-bit TestTrack Server to the 64-bit TestTrack Server on the Same Computer

Article ID: 463  |  Last updated: 28 Jul, 2016

This article explains how to migrate data from the 32-bit TestTrack Server to the 64-bit server for the same TestTrack version on the same computer. If you need to move the TestTrack Server installation to a different computer, see Moving the TestTrack Server Between Computers.

Note: If you need to upgrade TestTrack, we recommend upgrading all 32-bit client and server components first to make sure the upgrade is successful before migrating to the 64-bit server. See the TestTrack help for information about upgrading TestTrack.

Migrating to the 64-bit server

  1. Make sure the computer you are installing the 64-bit TestTrack Server on meets the minimum system requirements.
  2. Stop the TestTrack Server if it is running.
  3. Back up the TestTrack Server database and projects.
  4. If you use SQL Server, create unique 64-bit ODBC DSNs to replace the 32-bit DSNs configured for TestTrack databases.
  5. If you are also migrating to the 64-bit Seapine License Server, see Migrating from the 32-bit Seapine License Server to the 64-bit Seapine License Server on the Same Computer before installing the 64-bit license server.
  6. Install the 64-bit TestTrack Server.
  7. If you use Oracle, install the 64-bit Oracle OCI Client.
  8. Configure TestTrack projects.

Installing the 64-bit TestTrack Server

Note: In TestTrack 2015.1 and later, the 32-bit and 64-bit server components are bundled in the same installer. Run the installer you used to install the 32-bit components again and select to install 64-bit applications. For TestTrack 2015.0.2 and earlier, 32-bit and 64-bit server components are in separate installers.

Windows

  1. Run the TestTrack installer and select the components to install.

    Make sure to install the 64-bit server components in a different directory than the 32-bit components.

    Note: Select ‘Do not start the TestTrack Server’ and ‘Do not start the Seapine License Server’ when prompted so you can move your existing data before starting the 64-bit server.

  2. Copy the TTServDb directory, including all project subdirectories and files, from the 32-bit TestTrack application directory to the 64-bit directory.

    By default, the 32-bit TestTrack application directory is C:\Program Files (x86)\Seapine\TestTrack and the 64-bit directory is C:\Program Files\Seapine\TestTrack. If you use Oracle, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server databases, the TestTrack server and project database locations depends on the RDBMS database type and configuration.

Linux

  1. Run the TestTrack installer and select the components to install.

    The 32-bit and 64-bit servers are installed in the same directory. The default application directory is /var/lib/TestTrack.

Installing the 64-bit Oracle OCI Client

If you use Oracle, download and install the 64-bit Oracle OCI Client. The required Oracle libraries must be installed in the 64-bit TestTrack application directory.

Configuring TestTrack projects

  1. Start the Seapine License Server and TestTrack Server.
  2. Start the TestTrack Server Admin Utility.
  3. Check the server database location in the server options to make sure the correct database is used.

    If you use an Oracle, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server database, you may need to change the database configuration.

  4. If you use SQL Server, add connections for the DSNs you created for TestTrack projects.
  5. Make sure all projects you use are added and loaded.

    If projects do not load, you made need to upgrade them to the current TestTrack version.
