Updated in 2021.2
If you want to evaluate the new functionality and features introduced in the most recent version before the upgrade, you may want to use the Evaluation installation. This way you can quickly install all product’s components on a single computer without having to spend your time on a detailed configuration.
In order to avoid affecting your production servers, we recommend that you perform the Evaluation Installation on a separate computer dedicated to testing, or on a virtual machine.
INFO: For details and instructions, see Evaluation Installation.
TIP: A better alternative to test-driving the new version is the pilot upgrade. For details, see Upgrade scenarios.
