Use the Preprocessing upgrade state transfer form to copy the completed preprocessing state of a test upgrade source system to your production source system or another test system. By performing most of the upgrade preprocessing tasks on a test system that is a copy of the production system, you can reduce the processing load on your production source system.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.




Start the transfer of the upgrade state. The condition of both the test system and the production system is validated. If no errors are found, batch jobs are scheduled to copy the shadow, dictionary, auxiliary, and framework tables to the production source system.



Server name

The name of the test source system on which upgrade preprocessing was completed.

Database name
