Additional documentation and online help is installed with Surround SCM.
- If you are upgrading both Surround SCM and TestTrack, upgrade the product with the most recent release date last. This will guarantee that you install the latest version of the Seapine License Server. Refer to the knowledgebase article 'Cannot Connect to the Seapine License Server After Upgrading' for more information.
Client installers simplify installation on computers that only require client access to Surround SCM.
64-bit Server Installers
Surround SCM server-only installers simplify installation on servers and do not contain client files. 64-bit versions, which support the largest file repositories, are available for some operating systems.
Native Oracle Access Installers
The Oracle OCI installers contain everything you need to access Oracle databases. You must install the OCI on the operating system that you are running the TestTrack Server on.
Surround SCM 2008.1 Analyze Utility
Before upgrading from Surround SCM 2008.1.x to a later version, we strongly recommended that you run the Surround SCM 2008.1.x Analyze Utility to address any database issues. This analyze utility only works with Surround SCM 2008.1.x databases, so do not use it with earlier versions.
