We are planning Publisher upgrade from version 6.1 to 8.6 on UCS.
We have purchased licenses for 8.6 version.
Our upgrade steps would be:
-Take the spare MCS server and install 6.1 version.
-DRS backup of production server
-DRS restore on test server
-upgrade to 6.1.4
-install COP file
-upgrade to 8.6
-change IP address (so we can test somethings before migration)
-create VM on UCS
-change IP address (when we migrate)
My questions are :
- at what point(s) should we upload licenses?
- should we do it after changing ip address and then use answer file generator for VM on UCS?
- what is happening to licenses when the ip address of the server is changed? I didn't read anything regarding this in the guide.
