- Typical changes are as follows:
- The wizard default setting for the database is KMASTER. Change KMASTER to whatever your existing database setting. For example KPMASTER5. You can select the existing database from the drop-down list box.
- The wizard defaults to KContent, while most existing installations use KPContent.
- Typically Kdata needs to be Changed to KPdata
- The default launch URL is //servername/KCENTER. Most existing installations use //servername/KPATH50.
It is also recommend that you refere to Knowledge Base Article, ID. 1327397.1 before you begin your upgarde.
