EP6 NW04 on 32 bit upgrade to EP7 on 64 bit
We want to move from EP6 NW04 on 32-bit Windows/Oracle to EP7 on 64 bit Windows/Oracle. Our choices are:
- system copy to new 64 bit hardware and then upgrade.
- upgrade on 32 bit then system copy to new 64 bit hardware.
- install EP7 on the new 64 bit hardware and transport the content from EP6.
What is considered best practice? What would be the main reasons for choosing fresh installs over the copy/upgrade? Any comments welcome...
Also, is a system copy from 32-bit to 64-bit considered heterogeneous?
And lastly.. is it possible to use the "XML Content & Actions" method for copying transport from EP6 to EP7?
Many thanks in advance.
