Adequate administrative permissions
The Days in Rear
and the Clean Days in Rear
parameters must be properly configured for each system; otherwise, this strategy will not work correctly and some trace data files may not be processed. They should be set to a Time Period (in days) that includes all files in the Tracedata folder for each corresponding system.
- Verify the date of the oldest file you have in the Tracedata\<system> directory and calculate the period that includes all the number of days until that date
- Login into FADE as an administrator and select the system (i.e.: sys1).
- Configure the Days in Rear and Clean Days in Rear parameters.
Navigate to Administration -> TM_System_Configuration -> DIPAZ
- In the fields Days in Rear and Clean Days in Rear enter the calculated time period.
- Click Save.
- For any additional systems configured in the TM server, repeat the same above procedure and configure the fields Days in Rear and Clean Days in Rear as required for each system.
- Proceed with the upgrade installation. The following prompt appears:
Proceed with a Start Clean Upgrade, processing just new files [y/n]
- Type n (no) at the prompt.
TM system name: sys1
Today is March 20, 2010
The “oldest” trace file's date is March 5th
Time Period (number of days that includes all files) = 15.
