Installation and Conversion Updates
QAD Deployment Toolkit (QDT) and EE Configuration
RAM Disk
QDT now supports the writing of temp files to a RAM disk during Enterprise Edition for Progress and Oracle configuration. Use of a RAM disk can greatly accelerate the configuration process by taking advantage of the inherent speed offered by this type of memory.
Database Type
QDT now has a Database Type pull-down menu. This menu is used to change the database type to Oracle during Enterprise Edition for Oracle installation. The default database type is Progress.
Independent Database Locations (Progress)
QDT now allows you to specify different locations for the individual production databases during Enterprise Edition for Progress configuration. Previously, you could select the database locations, but QDT placed them all in a designated directory. QDT will continue to place empty databases in the db directory.
Multiple Database Locations (Oracle)
QDT now provides limited support for multiple database locations by allowing you to specify the production schema holder location during Enterprise Edition for Oracle configuration. However, you cannot change the locations of the Oracle data files within QDT. You should use the Oracle DBCA tool to determine the locations of these files.
Conversion/Upgrade
UI-Only Upgrades
There is no need to perform a UI-only upgrade from QAD Enterprise Edition 2012 to 2012.1 because the .NET UI version did not change between the two releases. If you need to apply a UI patch, follow the instructions included with the patch.
New Utility Field Label
The Conversion Parameters Utility (utfinpar.p) field label Management Currency was changed to Reporting Currency. This change applies to Enterprise Edition for Progress and Oracle.
Known Issues
QAD 2012.1 EE for Progress has the following known conversion/upgrade issue:
Progress 10.2B is required for Enterprise Edition 2012.1. During the proutil stage of the database upgrade, the database is enabled for 64-bit sequences. If the 64-bit sequences are already enabled, an error message to this effect appears in the log. QDT ignores this message and the processing continues.
In the Early Adopter release of QAD EE for Oracle, there are functionality limitations in two areas:
Budgeting functions are not available.
Financial Report Writer is not supported.
