Upgrade from the previous version to version 8.3.1
- Conversion of configurations, infobases, external data processors, and external reports is not required during the upgrade from the previous version to version 8.3.1.
- To use certain features of version 8.3.1 you have to disable the compatibility mode. The structure of certain objects is modified when disabling or enabling the compatibility mode. Note that to be able to work with infobases created using previous 1C:Enterprise versions you have to enable the compatibility mode. In order to use certain optimization improvements, you have to restructure data related to the optimization areas. To restructure data, you can use the Verify and repair mode, or perform forced object restructuring.
- It is recommended that you revise the list of infobases. Infobases that are present in the list when version 8.3 is installed in most cases have version 8.2 or 8.1 (because it is the default version, which is set automatically when an infobase is created or added to the list). Therefore, in order to open an infobase in 8.3, you have to specify the required version in the list of infobase startup settings, or specify the version directly in the infobase settings.
- At the first start of server cluster version 8.3.1 on the computer hat has previous versions of ther server cluster installed, the content of the cluster register file(1CV8Reg.lst) is converted to a new format. The register of the server cluster 8.3.1 is stored in the file 1CV8Clst.lst, in the same directory as the cluster register of the previous versions. There is no data synchronization between cluster registers of different versions after the first start of server cluster 8.3.1.
To perforrm the conversion of the cluster register from version 8.2. to version 8.3 once more, stop the server cluster 8.3, delete the server cluster 8.3 register (the 1CV8Clst.lst file), and then start the server cluster 8.3.
