SLX Web Upgrade from 601 to 752

We are about to embark on and upgrade of a customised SLX Web 601 implementation to version 752.  It is currently on Windows 2003 and MSSQL2k

 

We would like to know if there are any (many) hidden major pitfalls or issues we are likely to encounter that will affect the implementation, its performance or opperation. 

 

Any resources or information will be greatfully received.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: SLX Web Upgrade from 601 to 752

Your first pitfall is that it is a "do-over-from-scratch" deal.

 

There's really nothing in common between pre 7.2.x web and the current web product.

Re: SLX Web Upgrade from 601 to 752

Thanks for the response.

 

OK then.  Maybe I should re-phrase my question a little.

 

We are anticipating that we can get the legacy web to run on a 7.5.2 implementation of the upgraded 6.0 database and tackle the upgrade (do-over-from-scratch) of the web components at a later stage.

 

Is that do-able?

 

Hoping for a more positive response.

 

Brian.

Re: SLX Web Upgrade from 601 to 752

I know a BP that did this for one of their clients. It is not an easy path and it only works against an existing (legacy web) installation. Since it's considered a "supported" approach, you will probably be having some discussions w/your BP and/or Sage SalesLogix tech Support to get thru it successfully.
