Upgrading InforOS 12.0.x

Can anyone advise on the difficulty of upgrading InforOS 12.0.x?    We currently have 12.0.20 and would like to get to at least 12.0.37 if not .40.   Anyone experience any issues either as part of the upgrade process or as a result of it?   

The installation guide states a recommended upgrade path of 12.0.20 > 12.0.25 > 12.0.30 > 12.0.32 > 12.0.40

Have others actually installed each version without jumping to the most recent?   Any estimates on how long each hop takes?

  • Hi, all.  Matt, you've received great feedback from everyone so far.  All of which aligns with what I've seen and experienced as well.

    Elaborating on Brandon's mention of approach to upgrading, evaluate what's been invested in your deployment so far.  Most likely, you'll find it simpler and less time consuming to export and save work, then re-import after a fresh install at the current level.  Of course you'll want to document any of your general settings, etc. too so that can be setup on the new system.

    My recommendation would be to take this approach and install 12.0.40.  It's been a solid upgrade on-premise.  Check that all prerequisites are in place and away you go!

    Also, depending on your time-frame, I believe another release will soon be made available per Infor's product update announcement in Dec 2019:

    "Infor OS is expected to begin offering on-premise bi-annual release updates starting in calendar year 2020, with currently scheduled updates in June and Dec."

    Good luck!
