Upgrading from B73.3 Base to Xe

When I attended an upgrade overview class at JDE headquarters the
instructor, who was also a consultant, said you can skip up to 2 full
releases. So if you're on B73.3 Base you can skip B73.3.1 and B73.3.2 and
go to Xe. Maybe something has changed though? I hope not because we are
planning our upgrade from B73.3 Base to Xe also.

Has anyone successfully upgraded to Xe from B73.3 Base?

Some people have already migrated from B7321 to B7332 or Xe, so I don't see
why you shouldn't
be able to migrate from B7330 to Xe.

Justin,
My reply won't answer your question, but it may give you an idea of what others are doing, elsewhere; we just upgraded our B7321 to Xe (it seems that the name 'B733.3' will not be used by JDE people anymore).
It was not THAT easy, we are still fighting to fix some fuzzy things - like 8 NER business functions, that have different code, PY(prototype/CRP), PD & DV compared with JD(pristine) - in order to be able to build packages ...

"Successfully" is a relative term in this business.

However, outside of a few object retrofitting efforts, it seems to have gone
as expected.

AS/400 B733 Base to XE Central Objects from SQL Server 7.0 SP 1 migrated to
the AS/400.

You can upgrade form B7.33 to Xe. This is only 1 release jump as JDE call the release the B733 and B733.1 , B733.2 are cumulative levels of the B733 release.

True releae level skipping starts with Xe.

Hope this makes sense.

riiiiight

Cumulative levels ? Since when ? Theory or reality ?

JDE have been deleting objects left right and center between object updates - and what do you call the mass difference between Service Packs on each of these releases ?

B733 uses Visual C++ 5
B7331 doesn't use B733 service packs or B7332 service packs (and why, may I ask ?)

Believe me, it is possible to upgrade from B7.3.2 to B7.3.3.3 - which in my opinion is a total of 6 jumps. The instructor had a good smoke of something if you ask me - since there are huge sections in the Xe upgrade guide that detail B7.3.2.x upgrades. Pity instructors never go out to customers - eh
