    • Align with EMC Roadmap EMC Release Types and Support Durations External Internal Release Type Characteristics Name Name  Architectural Changes  Revolutionary Changes Major A.0 A.0  As required  EOS: 4 years + Extended Support  Feature Enhancements  Rollup and Regression QA of HF Minor A.B A.B  Minimum 9 – 12 months after Major  EOS: Sync with Major (3 years minimum) Rollup and QA of HF As needed - Typically Service Pack A.B SPx A.B.x  Release + 4 mo = SP1, + 6 mo = SP2, + 8 mo = SP3 EOS: Sync with Major/Minor Bug fix(es) for urgent customer issues Hot Fix/Patch A.B SPx HFy A.B.x.yyyy Released on current Service Pack © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 8
    • Model Enhancements  Enhanced TCO & deployment planning horizon – Release supported for 6 years (4 yrs standard plus 2 yrs extended) – Predictable Service Packs – Release frequency: Major +4; Minor +4, +6, +8 – NEW: Guaranteed support overlap of 24 months from last SP to next major release  Improved Service Pack quality and reduced upgrade Impact – Limited features in Service Packs; – All feature inclusions undergo high scrutiny and require executive approval  Timely feature enhancements in a predictable release model – NEW: Major/Minor release every 9 – 12 months © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 9
    • Documentum 6.x Content Server is backward compatible  Documentum 5.3 client applications supported with Documentum 6.x Content Server include Webtop, DAMtop, Custom 5.3 and D6.x DFC and WDK apps 5.3 Client D6.x Content Server © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 10
    • Limited # of D6.x clients are backwards compatible 5.3 Content Server D6.x Client © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 11
    • Migration fine print  Except for Webtop, custom DFC and custom WDK apps you will need to migrate your Content Server first, then your client applications  In a mixed environment i.e. using 5.3 & 6.x clients against the same D6.x Server  Certain 5.3 SBO & TBO restrictions might apply (details in migration guide)  Separate 5.3 and D6.x/D6.x.5 Global Registries are required  Full functionality may not be accessible through 5.3 clients  Following D6.x applications require all other clients accessing the same D6.x Server be also D6.x and therefore that the clients be upgraded at the same time – Records Manager – Retention Policy Services – Documentum Collaborative Edition  BPM and DCM suite of products should be upgraded to D6.x in groups © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 12
    • Full Text migration  Upgrading from 5.3 SP2 or SP3 with Get Well Fixes – NO Full-text Rebuild  Upgrading from 5.3, 5.3 SP1 – Rebuild Indexes  Upgrading from 5.2.5 -> 5.3 -> D6.x.x – Rebuild Index – Only Once © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 13
    • Global Registry enhanced capabilities  In Documentum 6.x, the global registry is required for all clients  The global registry stores objects such as: – User preferences – Location information – Server-based Objects – Presets  It is necessary to have a D6.x global registry for D6.x clients  It is necessary to have a 5.3 global registry for 5.3 clients that require it  The global registry is a significant consideration during migration © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 14
    • Migration decision tree  Did you have a single server/repository (departmental solution) OR  a distributed server/repository configuration (enterprise solution)? © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 15
    • Departmental solution with a 5.3 global registry If you had a 5.3 global registry: 1. Upgrade the server, repository and clients all at once Or 1. Create a second repository dedicated to 5.3 global registry 2. Upgrade the Content Server and repository to D6.x 3. Create the D6.x global registry 4. Use utility to move global registry objects from 5.3 to D6.x 5. Decommission the 5.3 global registry repository © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 16
    • 5.3 Departmental solution with no global registry  If you had no 5.3 global registry 1. Upgrade the 5.3 Content Server and repository to D6.x 2. Designate the repository as the D6.x global registry 3. Upgrade client applications to D6.x © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 17
    • Enterprise Solution using 5.3 global registry 1. Leave your 5.3 global registry repository in place 2. Create a new Documentum 6.x global registry repository 3. Use utility to migrate 5.3 global registry objects to the Documentum 6.x global registry repository 4. Upgrade content server(s) to Documentum 6.x 5. Upgrade application server(s) and clients to Documentum 6.x 6. Decommission your 5.3 global registry repository © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 18
    • New Infrastructure for 6.x  Java 5 Support  JMS – using JBOSS (6.5 +)  Eclipse, Composer and DARS  IPV6  Kerberos (coming SP2)  Presets  DFS © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 19
    • DMCL functionality now Java Based D6.x using Java 5 DFC Java 5.3 JNI DMCL Content Server C++ D6.x DFC Content Server J-DMCL Java © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 20
    • WAR file Deployment  Java based DMCL Enables WAR File Deployment for WDK Apps  Allow IT personnel to deploy WebApps using App Server tools  Simplify Clustered and HA deployments  Accelerate support for new App Server versions  Allow “non-exploded” WAR file deployment for better performance  Sandbox DFC per Application to avoid application conflicts  Simplify troubleshooting by removing transition from Java to C++ © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. 21
    • D6.x WDK based deployment scenario  Developer – Download WAR – Deploy WAR to Dev Application Server (in expanded mode) – Configure Web Application – Add Customizations, Language Packs and Patches – Create deployable WAR  Production Machine Admin – Deploy Production WAR -> Application is up and ready to use! © Copyright 2009 EMC Corporation.
