Preparing for Upgrade¶
The creation of a new build_home for upgrade is handled in the build place Lifecycle Experience, and it is the normal approach.
The build_home is downloaded from the LE portal and placed in the deliveries folder according to the folder structure in Windows Management Server.
When upgrading to IFS Cloud from an earlier release, always run the creation of install.tem within the build home, by calling the create-install-tem.cmd/sh script with database connection information to align the install.tem with the component status in the database to be upgraded.
For customers that has been granted to build manually, proceed to Build a build_home.
