#VDI Tip 66: Be Master of your Universe – Pre-Upgrade Tip

This tip is more for a consultant or if you’re walking into a new environment. Make sure you are both a Administrator on the Server and on the View Console before attempting an upgrade. Easily overlooked if have Admin rights of the View console.

To double check before hand, run the export of the ADAM database from the command line. Doing it from the Admin console won’t verify it.

vdmexport > myexport.LDF

This will verfiy your administrative access. If you’re not an administrator in both areas the upgrade can fail and replication may break as the ADAM database will get corrupt. You’ve been warned, go fourth and be Master of your Universe and upgrade to 5.0.1!
