Updating vob nav packs
But after your system is updated you also need to test. In the future, we are likely to see a new trend where partners and end-users increase the use of automated testing.Solution providers will have to provide not only a tested and certified solution to NAV, they will also have to provide test scripts.Today when it comes to upgrade and quality each version is as good as another – whether it is a major release or a cumulative update.You can for example upgrade when cumulative upgrade 1 is released, just one month after a new version is released.Previously companies typically waited until service pack 1 was released to upgrade to a new NAV version.And it also took time to learn a new version after it was released.From an end-user perspective it means that you don’t have to install each and every cumulative update to your system, you can install the latest one when needed, and then your entire system will be brought up to date. They can just download the latest released version and go from there. You could say of course, that the downside of cumulative updates is the testing bottleneck.
Cumulative updates are built and tested differently, thus cumulative update 3 will also include all changes made in Cumulative update 1 and 2. A great advantage for partners is that they no longer have to go through a comprehensive process of searching for service packs in knowledge-based articles.And every month a full new version is available, thus if you wait two months instead, then you install the solution with cumulative update two directly, and so on…Upgrade is no longer a destination, it is a journey.Note: This configuration not only side steps potential NFS defects but also improves and optimizes the performance of VOB hosts.If you choose to avoid using NFS for VOB database storage, consider the following: OPTION #3: Apply one of the following versions below which introduces a new alternate configuration that involves moving the almd files (used for VOB database concurrency control) to local disk storage on the VOB server to reduce the impact of the known NFS defects on Clear Case.
