Migration from Alloy Navigator Express

This chapter provides instructions for upgrading from Alloy Navigator Express and migrating to the latest version of the Alloy Navigator Suite 8. During the migration, you can use the old and new versions of the product simultaneously. This allows you to test the new version in a pilot environment, while still using the existing system in production.

IMPORTANT: Alloy Navigator Express and the Alloy Navigator Enterprise of the same major version are incompatible. For testing the pilot Alloy Navigator 8 database and upgrading data from Alloy Navigator Express 8, use a separate computer or a virtual machine. For details, see Pilot System Scenario for Database Migration from Alloy Navigator Express.

INFO: For instructions on minor upgrades within version 8.x, see Minor Upgrade Within Version 8.

You can migrate to Alloy Navigator 8 Suite from these products:

  • Alloy Navigator Express 8
  • Alloy Navigator Express 7
  • Alloy Navigator Express 6
