Default Upgrading from 5.1.x to 5.1.x Windows

Download the latest release from www.dbvisit.com/downloads.php

Unzip the file locally and follow the upgrade instructions in the README.txt file under:
================================================== =====================
WINDOWS - UPGRADING INSTRUCTIONS FROM VERSION 5.1.x to VERSION 5.1.x
================================================== =====================

You do not need to re-configure Dbvisit Standby.
You do not need to uninstall Dbvisit Standby.
You only need to upgrade on the primary server (or primary RAC nodes).

Existing license keys are automatically applied to the latest upgrade.

================================================== ==========
You do not need to re-configure Dbvisit Standby.
You do not need to uninstall Dbvisit Standby.

Make a copy of the current Dbvisit Standby executables for rollback purposes.
Existing license keys are automatically applied to the latest software.
These steps only need to be done on the PRIMARY SERVER!
--------------
(For RAC the upgrade needs to be done on each primary RAC node)

1) Stop the Dbvisit Standby schedule(s) (recommended but not essential).
2) Unzip the dbvisit51_win32.zip to a temporary location.
3) Double click the Dbvisit Standby Windows installer: Dbvisit51-Inst.exe
4) Choose only the Dbvisit Standby software.
Unselect the Bitvise WinSSHD and Bitvise Tunnelier component.
Unselect the Configure SSH2 component.
5) Say Yes to "Do you want to configure and setup Dbvisit Standby now".
This ensures all the latest parameters are available in the Dbvisit Standby Database
configuration (DDC) file and that the Dbvisit Standby Database repository (DDR)
is up to date.
i) Choose option 6) Update Dbvisit Standby Database configuration (DDC) file.
ii) Choose the Database for which to upgrade the DDC file.
iii) Would you like to review all the variables? <Yes/No> [Yes]: No
iv) A new copy of the DDC file will created and a backup copy will be made.
v) Choose option 5) Manage Dbvisit Standby Database repository (DDR).
vi) Choose option 3) Check version of Dbvisit Standby Database repository (DDR)
If this indicates that the DDR needs updating, then choose option 1 to
update DDR.
If the DDR is up to date, nothing needs to be done.
vii) Repeat steps i-vi for other databases that use Dbvisit Standby on the primary
server.
viii) Exit out of the dbvisit_setup program.
6) Start the Dbvisit Standby command console (Start Menu -> Programs -> Dbvisit).
7) Copy over the Dbvisit Standby installation to the standby server with the command:
dbvisit -c <database_name>
This command is run on the primary server only.
8) Run Dbvisit Standby manually on the primary and standby server with the command:
dbvisit <database_name>
9) Restart the Dbvisit Standby schedule(s) if stopped.

For more information:
Follow the upgrading instructions in the Dbvisit Standby User Guide.
