Issue/Introduction

In order to receive and install the latest TDM patch version, how can the exact version of TDM be checked?

 

Cause

There is unexpected behavior with the current TDM portal operation and the resolution is to upgrade if the version is not on the latest TDM patch.

Resolution

Method 1

At the bottom left-hand corner, click the 'About' link.


Method 2a

Review the following log file in the default location: 
C:\ProgramData\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\logs\TDMService.log

and search/find the following string: Starting TDMServiceServletInitializer 

The line containing it will show the exact version immediately after, e.g.

c.c.t.s.TDMServiceServletInitializer:  Starting TDMServiceServletInitializer v4.8.100.3

Method 2b
Review the following log file in the default location: 
C:\ProgramData\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\logs\startup.log

and search/find the following string:  "Current version of schema"

The line containing it will show the exact version immediately after, e.g.
Current version of schema "GTREP": 4.8.0.6

 

 

Additional Information

When performing an upgrade, it will be necessary to perform an incremental upgrade, e.g.
If the current version is TDM 4.2, the upgrade path would be to

a. upgrade from 4.2 to 4.4
b. upgrade from 4.4 to 4.6
c. upgrade from 4.6 to 4.8.1

Ensure GT (Grid Tools) Server is installed.
