Sybase IQ 16.1 - Restore from previous backup's version



My current IQ database is of version SAP IQ/16.0 SP11.06 and I am planning to upgrade to SAP IQ 16.1 SP05.

I would like to upgrade on a new system, can I install the 16.1 SP05 binaries, restore 16.0 SP11 from backup and then proceed to the upgrade?


Do I have to install the oldest version first, restore and then proceed with binaries installation and upgrade procedure?

I looked through the doc but didn't find anything conclusive? If you have this somewhere, that would be appreciated!


(Edited because it was early in the morning and forgot to behave ;o)

Yes, you can restore the previous version database backup to the new version binaries, and then upgrade the database.

Functionally, this is the same as if you had upgraded the binaries on an existing server.

Make sure that you follow the steps for upgrading the database to the new version:

Thanks Gentlemen for this confirmation, this is appreciated. Have a nice day!
