Upgrade NV Test Manager on Windows

Upgrading from Network Virtualization 9.x

To keep test data from Network Virtualization 9.x, make sure to do the following:

  1. During uninstallation of 9.x, select the option to retain the data folder.

  2. During installation of 9.13, make sure to use the same data folder that was used for 9.x.

Upgrading from a Shunra network virtualization product (prior to Network Virtualization 9.00)

Tests from previous versions of Shunra network virtualization products are not compatible with HPE Network Virtualization version 9.13. Even if you select to maintain the test data when you uninstall a previous version, the tests will not be included in the list of existing tests in NV Test Manager version 9.13.

Before you install any HPE Network Virtualization version 9.13 components, uninstall any existing Shunra applications.

Alternatively, to maintain access to tests from a previous version, do not uninstall the previous version, and install NV Test Manager version 9.13 on a different computer.
