Database Upsizer Follow

Database Upsizer

The upsizer is a program that runs behind the scenes when you update or install a new version of GlasPacLX on your system. Its function is to change the structure of the database, sometimes even moving data around within the structure. If GlasPacLX requires you to upsize your database, you will see a message that is similar to the one in the following message.

Note: The message will indicate which version you are upgrading from and to. Also, the upsizer will always upgrade versions in proper sequence. If, for example, you are upgrading from 3.14 and the newest version is 3.3, this process will repeat from 3.14 to 3.2, and so on, until it gets to 3.3. For details on finding out which version you currently have, click here.

Normally, the only indication you will see that the upsizer is running is a progress bar, similar to the one shown in the following image.

If the upsize is successful, your install will be successful and you can use GlasPacLX as you normally would.

If the upsize fails, then you will see one of two error messages:

Critical Error

A critical error is when the entire upsize fails while you are trying to do a required update. In the event of a critical error, your database will automatically roll back to the previous version. If this occurs, your options would be to:

w                Continue using the old version of GlasPacLX

w                Try to upsize again

w                Contact Technical Support (recommended)

 

Non-critical Error

For a non-critical error, GlasPacLX will alert you of the error. You will still be able to run GlasPacLX, but at a less than optimal level. If this occurs, your options would be to:

w                Continue using GlasPacLX and maybe the next version of GlasPacLX will fix the problem

w                Contact Technical Support (recommended)

 

In either even you will have the option to view the upsizer log file. The following message will appear.

Select the Yes button. Otherwise, the upsizer log file is located at: C:\GTS\GlaspacLX\Logs\GTSDBUp.log

Here is a sample Log History.
