Upgrading the Enterprise Vault databases
Before you start any Enterprise Vault services, you must upgrade the Enterprise Vault databases.
You only need to complete this procedure on the active node.
Enterprise Vault provides a PowerShell cmdlet called Start-EVDatabaseUpgrade, which you can use to upgrade all Enterprise Vault databases.
To upgrade Enterprise Vault's databases
- On the active node, log in using the Vault Service account.
- Run the Enterprise Vault Management Shell.
- In the Enterprise Vault Management Shell, run the following command:
Note that you can also run Start-EVDatabaseUpgrade -verbose if you want to see detailed output.
- Wait for Start-EVDatabaseUpgrade to complete the upgrade of all the databases.
When the upgrade is complete, you can examine the upgrade reports for errors.
Start-EVDatabaseUpgrade writes the reports in the
Reports\DBUpgrade subfolder of the Enterprise Vault installation folder (for example
C:\Program Files (x86)\Enterprise Vault).
