Upgrading to NV Server version 9.13

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.

Install NV Server

Note: Make sure to install NV Server on a different machine from NV Test Manager.

On the NV Server computer, run the NVSetupWizard.exe setup file (as an administrator), select NV Server, click Install, and follow the on-line directions.

During the installation, you will be required to:

  • enter a username and password that can be used to access the NV Server. You can change both the username and the password after installing NV Server.

  • specify the Destination folder and the Data folder. The NV Server application files are installed in the Destination folder. After installation, the NV Server will store all data in the Data folder.

    Note: For better performance, make sure that the destination folder and the data folder are located on the same hard drive.
