For testing purposes, I am using Dataminer Configs to have multiple Dataminer versions available on my computer. By using the SLTaskbarUtility, I can easily switch to my desired Dataminer configuration in just a few seconds. At this moment, I have a config with DM 9.6 main release installed and another config with the latest 9.6 feature release.
I would like to add a new config with DM 10.0 main release installed. I can't seem to find any documentation on whether this is already supported. Are there any things to keep in mind?
Note: As far as I know, it is not recommended to use Dataminer Configs in a production environment.
Jarno, the initial answer is 'yes' it is possible to use multiple main releases in the configuration switcher.
There are a few thing to mention:
- You're probably referring to SLTaskbarUtility which automatically gets installed on the server hosting the DMA node, and not the client test tool.
- There are a few known caveats, for me these are the most important ones
- It's by default using a MySQL config, so if you only have Cassandra installed you'll have to modify the db.xml manually
- As there is only 1 version of SLTaskbarUtility installed on the DMA (only the most recent one from your different configs) you might encounter issues upgrading an older version using the taskbar utility.
