Identify potential upgrade problems before the actual upgrade is started.
The pre-upgrade Environment Scanner utility identifies potential problems that you might encounter when you upgrade your existing system from PRPC 6.x or later versions to the latest version of the Pega 7 Platform. It also provides the sample files migratesystem.properties and setupdatabase.properties, which are required for the split-schema upgrade steps.
Run the scanner before you upgrade your system to identify the following types of potential problems:
Unsupported application servers or databases
Insufficient user permissions
Schema customizations unsupported by the target release
The scanner also provides an estimate of the time required to run the upgrade scripts. These estimates are approximate and can vary according to your configuration.
