Things to do before upgrade - HDR/RSS

    Hello

    As i can see here , there are a bunch of things to do or check before upgrade (IDS12 > 14).

    But do I have to do all this on all the servers ?

    For example, UDRs
    Do i have to recompile them also on the HDR and RSS ?

    (Also, if you have a link to UDR compile/recompile process, I'll be pleased)


    Also, verifying integrity of data pages

    To answer your specific question, anything in file systems, such as recompiling C or Java UDRs, will need to be copied to HDR/RSS servers. Anything in the IDS instance can only be done on the primary, and may require rebuilding HDR/RSS instances from level 0 archives if not achieved via SQL, for example "oncheck". Others will correct me if I'm wrong!

    It depends on the UDR, for instance any custom TS UDRs should be recompiled as TS is normally tightly coupled to the engine. But if you are using the regex, either IBM or Oninit version,  functions within your UDR then there is no need to recompile

    Hello,,

    And what about the those checks ?
    oncheck -***

    https://youtu.be/xsylAz5U1sY?t=1328

    Is it necessary to execute them on the HDR/RSS or primary is enough ?

    Thanks
