Issue/Introduction

When planning to upgrade to SCM v13.0.4, where can we find the documentation on compatible operating systems and databases, new features, problems solved, and the upgrade procedure?

Resolution

When preparing for the upgrade of Harvest at your site, here are some links that will help:

Documentation for the latest release can be found here: https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/business-management/harvest-scm/13-0.html

In particular, the Release Notes section contains the Supportability Matrix (compatible operating systems, databases, etc), highlights of the newest enhancements, notes on problems resolved, can be found here: https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/business-management/harvest-scm/13-0/release-notes.html

And detailed upgrade instructions can be found here: https://techdocs.broadcom.com/content/broadcom/techdocs/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/business-management/harvest-scm/13-0/upgrading.html

Your upgrade will be done in 2 parts.  First you'll upgrade to SCM v13.0.3 which can be downloaded from the the download center here: https://support.broadcom.com/download-center/product-download.html?subfamily=SOFTWARE%20CHANGE%20MANAGER

Then, you'll upgrade to 13.0.4 using the "Refresh Pack" patch which can be found here: https://support.broadcom.com/download-center/solution-detail.html?aparNo=SO08840&os=ANY

If the broker is on Linux there’s a “gotcha” with the odbc.ini file that gets delivered with the upgrade.  If your broker is on Windows or other Unix platforms this does not apply.  Here’s where you can read about how to get around it: https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=135810

There is also a KB article detailing the procedure to follow if you are wanting to set up a script to silently install SCM Client on Windows machines.  Here is the article detailing that process: https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=194656
