OS X upgrade from 10.6.8

Hi,
I have Mac OS X 10.6.8.  I need to upgrade now.  This is needed and I am installing AirPort Time Capsule. I haven't purchased anything yet?  Have read mixed reviews on the most recent version.
What is the benefit of Yosemite X vs the step lower?
Also if you do upgrade do you have to have the previous version to upgrade higher?
Thanks

Navigate to www.apple.com/osx and read up on Yosemite. Your hardware is obviously quite old and you may be nearing the end of it's useful life. If the machine is a late 2009 iMac or later you can install additional RAM. Let us know how much RAM is currently installed, Yosemite demands 4GB or more.

  • Is it really possible to upgrade from a Treo 650 to a Treo 750?

    I am not a very happy customer at the moment, but any help would be greatly appreciated. I upgraded from my old Palm Tungsten to a Zire, then to a Cingular Treo 650, combining three devices into one. I have since discovered that the Treo 650 seems to have a faulty transmission mode, as I can rarely be clearly understood by whomever I call. Am on the second (or third, I have lost track) and continue to have the same problem. I get five bars of reception but can't be understood on the other end. A bit of a problem when one is trying to call 911. Am constantly told I am "breaking up". The repair shop says it "Can't duplicate the problem". OK, then I do not want to give up all the info I have stored in the fool thing, and the 750 seems to have a different system, so I thought I would try that. All the stuff I could find seemed to indicate it wouldn't be a problem to upgrade. When the 750 arrived, I tried to install the software from the CD on my Windows XP computer. No dice. Setup encounters an error and closes. Can't even look at the files, because setup tries to run any time I access the CD. From any drive.  Gave it to my girlfiend to check on her computer, and the CD seemed to run fine. Other CDs work just fine on my computer. Must be some kind of conflict, but what? Tried calling the AT&T number that suggested they could help with setup, and was first connected to the business center, they routed me to the laptop center, who routed me to the network center, who said they would have to bring in the Palm customer service and connected me to a Mac guy that dumped me back to a menu that took me to someone for whom English is a second language with whom I was trying to communicate over a very poor satellite connection. They made no sense anyway. telling me first that I couldn't have two desktops running (wrong, my girlfriend has my old Zire and the CD worked fine) and then insisting that the serial number on my device had to start with a P, when it clearly does not have any alpha characters in it. Gave up on that route of assistance. Managed to get the new ActiveSync installed from my girlfriends computer over the network. Great. Now let's get my 650 synced with Outlook (which I have not used at home) and see if we can move on. Nope. First I have to update Outlook 2000 from the old Win98 to my current XP. Find the old CD, and square that away. OK, now sync to Outlook. Nope. The sync program gives an error, saying it will only sync with Outlook 98, 2000, and XP(2002). Good grief. I have Outlook 2000, and the software apparently does not recognize it. If the Palm doesn't work, there is no reason for me to keep this phone, and I am very close to returning it and abandoning the Palm entirely when I upgrade to something that works, although I dread re-entering all that information.

    Thanks for the feedback. Today I installed an Enterprise version of Office 2007 I purchased a while back, but had not yet installed. Microsoft presented a few challenges, but they were quickly resolved. I then downloaded the appropriate conduit from Palm, and synced the 650 with the handheld overwriting the computer. Then used Active Destop to sync the 750. Satisfied I had moved as much info as possible, I called AT&T and had them move the phone number to the new Treo.
    Bonus! When the guy at AT&T called me on the new phone to verify it, he said it sounded better than my landline.
    Sorry for the streaming paragraph. When it is late I tend to write like I think.

  • I upgraded from iPhone 3GS to iPhone 6.  Everything converted fine until I deleted an app in error.  When I downloaded it from iTunes, my account is no longer recognized by the app's host servers.  Can I go back and re-sync one app from my old phone?

    I upgraded from iPhone 3GS to iPhone 6.  Everything converted fine.  Yesterday I deleted an app in error.  When I downloaded the software it from iTunes ( did this many times on the old 3GS), my account is no longer recognized by the app's host servers (Playtika), even though it did after the initial conversion.  Can I go back and re-sync just one app from my old phone?  

    Try deleting what is called the iPod Photo Cache.

  • Can't print from IE 8 after upgrading from Vista to Windows 7

    My laptop (HP Elitebook 8530w) uses two HP printers: Color LaserJet CP3525x (at work) and Deskjet 6940 (at home). Both printers are accessed across a local network.
    I recently upgraded from Vista Enterprise to Windows 7 Enterprise.
    Everything still prints fine (from Word, Adobe Reader, Windows Photo Viewer, etc.), except for IE 8! When I try to print a web page from IE, it prints only the page header, and otherwise the sheet is empty. This symptom occurs on both printers. (And of course this worked fine before the upgrade.)
    Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

    If anyone else is having this problem, I found the solution on another forum (http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/InternetExplorer/thread/920588e5-ccc4-4e24-83d6-606...).
    Specifically, the following steps solved the problem:
    1. If it doesn't already exist, create a directory named "Low" in your directory "C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Local\Temp\".
    2. From a command prompt, issue this command:  ICACLS C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Local\Temp\Low /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low

  • Fields in read-only mode for BP transaction in upgrade from 4.72 to ECC6.0

    Hello,
    This is regarding the query for BP transaction in upgrade from 4.72 to ECC 6.0.
    While creating BP / Changing BP system is disabling the fields in compnay code & sales area option. There is a SAP not provided 907860; and specified that the proplem is because of the delta customizing.
    All the customization settings are as per the note. And the Synchronization Control is also activated. But still the fields are disabled only.
    I have checked the field settings also in Cross-Application-Components & Logistic-Genral.
    But these are not working for compnay code & sales area data.
    please let me know if anyone has faced this type of problem / found any solution on this.
    Best Regards,
    Shubhada

    SAP IMG  -> Cross Application Components -> Master Data Synchronization &#61664; Synchronization Control -> Synchronization Control -> Activate Synchronization options
    This setting allows you to activate synchronization of BP with R/3. Not maintaining the values may result in certain fields being read-only in BP.
    Suggested Values:
    Source Object: BP | Target Object: CUSTOMER | Active Indicator : X
    Source Object: BP | Target Object: VENDOR | Active Indicator : X
    Source Object: CUSTOMER | Target Object: BP | Active Indicator : X
    Source Object: VENDOR | Target Object: BP | Active Indicator : X
    Have you set all of the above settings??

  • Slow table creation after upgrade from 10.2.0.3 to 11.2.0.1 using DBUA

    I've recently completed a database upgrade from 10.2.0.3 to 11.2.0.1 using the DBUA.
    I've since encountered a slowdown when running a script which drops and recreates a series of ~250 tables. The script normally runs in around 19 seconds. After the upgrade, the script requires ~2 minutes to run.
    By chance has anyone encountered something similar?
    The problem may be related to the behavior of an "after CREATE on schema" trigger which grants select privileges to a role through the use of a dbms_job call; between 10g and the database that was upgraded from 10G to 11g. Currently researching this angle.
    I will be using the following table creation DDL for this abbreviated test case:
    create table ALLIANCE  (
       ALLIANCEID           NUMBER(10)                      not null,
       NAME                 VARCHAR2(40)                    not null,
       CREATION_DATE        DATE,
       constraint PK_ALLIANCE primary key (ALLIANCEID)
               using index
           tablespace LIVE_INDEX
    tablespace LIVE_DATA;When calling the above DDL, an "after CREATE on schema" trigger is fired which schedules a job to immediately run to grant select privilege to a role for the table which was just created:
    create or replace
    trigger select_grant
    after CREATE on schema
    declare
        l_str varchar2(255);
        l_job number;
    begin
        if ( ora_dict_obj_type = 'TABLE' ) then
            l_str := 'execute immediate "grant select on ' ||
                                         ora_dict_obj_name ||
                                        ' to select_role";';
            dbms_job.submit( l_job, replace(l_str,'"','''') );
        end if;
    end;
    {code}
    Below I've included data on two separate test runs.  The first is on the upgraded database and includes optimizer parameters and an abbreviated TKPROF.  I've also, included the offending sys generate SQL which is not issued when the same test is run on a 10g environment that has been set up with a similar test case.  The 10g test run's TKPROF is also included below.
    The version of the database is 11.2.0.1.
    These are the parameters relevant to the optimizer for the test run on the upgraded 11g SID:
    {code}
    SQL> show parameter optimizer
    NAME                                 TYPE        VALUE
    optimizer_capture_sql_plan_baselines boolean     FALSE

    So while this certainly isn't the most elegant of solutions, and most assuredly isn't in the realm of supported by Oracle...
    I've used the DBMS_IJOB.DROP_USER_JOBS('username'); package to remove the 194558 orphaned job entries from the job$ table. Don't ask, I've no clue how they all got there; but I've prepared some evil looks to unleash upon certain developers tomorrow morning.
    Not being able to reorganize the JOB$ table to free the now wasted ~67MB of space I've opted to create a new index on the JOB$ table to sidestep the full table scan.
    CREATE INDEX SYS.JOB_F1_THIS_NEXT ON SYS.JOB$ (FIELD1, THIS_DATE, NEXT_DATE) TABLESPACE SYSTEM;The next option would be to try to find a way to grant the select privilege to the role without using the aforementioned "after CREATE on schema" trigger and dbms_job call. This method was adopted to cover situations in which a developer manually added a table directly to the database rather than using the provided scripts to recreate their test environment.
    I assume that the following quote from the 11gR2 documentation is mistaken, and there is no such beast as "create or replace table" in 11g:
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e10592/statements_9003.htm#i2061306
    "Dropping a table invalidates dependent objects and removes object privileges on the table. If you want to re-create the table, then you must regrant object privileges on the table, re-create the indexes, integrity constraints, and triggers for the table, and respecify its storage parameters. Truncating and replacing have none of these effects. Therefore, removing rows with the TRUNCATE statement or replacing the table with a *CREATE OR REPLACE TABLE* statement can be more efficient than dropping and re-creating a table."

  • Since upgrade from Exchange 2007 to Exchange 2013 the conversations in Outlook do not group by subject

    Hi Microsoft,
    Since we have upgraded from Exchange 2007 to 2013 users complain their conversations in Outlook are no longer grouped based on the subject of an e-mail. I looks like Outlook uses other message properties for grouping e-mails in a conversation.
    I have investigated all the forum topics and see that with exchange 2010 there is support added for the use of conversation-ID's. However the functionality to automatically group e-mails with the same subject in one conversation in Outlook is gone!
    I would like to know if there is a fix to implement so that some our users get this functionality back. For Example: Let the exchange server not generate conversation-ID's and message-ID's for certain users.
    Your help is greatly appreciated!

    Totally correct!
    If you don't plan to maintain Outlook then you plan to fail :(

  • Upgrade from SCCM 2012 SP1 CU4 to R2 Fails - Unsupported Upgrade Path

    Hi everybody,
    I'm currently upgrading our SCCM infrastructure to SCCM 2012 R2 after have finished with the upgrade from SCCM 2012 RTM to SP1 CU4, thus far everything works fine, but when I try to update any
    of the site servers, whether CAS or Primary, I'm getting the following error message in the Prerequisites Check:
    I've gone through the system requirements and prerequisites over and over again and I can assure you that every possible update, supported OS, feature set, SQL Server, check list, etc,
    etc, have been followed as per the official documentation available, however I'm stuck in this point, and surely enough I haven't been able to find out a similar case.Additionally I'm adding
    the ConfigMgrPrereq log (the relevant portion of it) in case someone could kindly take a look at it.

    on the CAS management console, any idea how to force the removal of a secondary site that's attached to a primary from the CAS site when it has been removed already from said primary?
    I've already tried the
    Preinst /DELSITE XXX  command but it only works when the site to remove it's attached to the local site and certainly not from a CAS
    Finally,  the version, build number and everything is correct, no idea what could be the problem, does anybody know a way to bypass this or force the re-evaluation of this rules, I've got
    the impression that it's being cached somehow.
    Any help would be highly appreciated,
    Thank you.

    Hello again everybody,
    I've finally managed to fix this up, in the end I had to delete those entries manually from the database as Garry suggested. After this was done the upgrade has gone through as expected with no further ado and has finalized already, now moving on to the
    primary sites.
    If anybody out there is facing the same issue, what I did was to delete those "stubborn" records executing the following statements over the CAS database:
    DELETE
    FROMServerDataWHERESiteCode='XXX'
    DELETE
    FROMSC_SiteDefinitionWHERESiteCode='XXX'
    And this is pretty much about it. I'd recommend to take a proper backup first though as best practice.
    Thank you all anyways for your answers and comments,
    Marcelo Estrada MCP-MCTS-MCITP-MCSA-MCSE

  • Upgrade from 4.6C to ERP6.0 EHP4 NW7.01 fails on EHP_INCLUSION

    Hello dear friends at SDN forums,
    We are performing an upgrade from a 4.6C Non Unicode source release to a SAP ERP 6.0 EHP4 based on NW 7 EHP1 Non Unicode.
    Every phase has gone more or less fine until the current phase EHP_INCLUSION in SAP EHPI tool.
    We are trying to specify the stack file manually, cosu00B4  SAP EHPI does not find it automatically via RFC against Solution Manager. I donu00B4t discard a possible missconfiguration in the RFC destination "BACK" configuration (the one that points from our target system to the Solution Manager), but thatu00B4s another story.
    Anyway, that shoulnu00B4t be relevant for the trouble Iu00B4m expressing.
    As we are on source release 4.6C  I must make use of the .txt stack file and not the .xml file, as per SAP notes.
    The symptom: everytime I retry that EHP_INCLUSION phase, it complaints about "Sever errors detected. Error Code = -1. Reason: The stack configuration does not contain a product stack".
    Iu00B4ll also paste here the contents of the EHP_INCLUSION.log trace file:

    That file was generated from Solman Mopz, was saved with a short path name just in case it could be problematic.
    The Solman is on version NW 7 EHP1. Our 4.6C SPAM version is 50 (the latest available).
    Iu00B4ve been fighting this issue for several days unsuccessfully, and it seems like thereu00B4s no documentation on it.
    Iu00B4ve re-read SAP notes , master, EHP and upgrade guides several times, and also similar problems (but not exactly the same as mine) here at SDN forums.
    Besides, now Iu00B4m having a problem to create customer messages to OSS which will last a few days (due an issue with our old installation number in SAP Service Marketplace). Thatu00B4s why Iu00B4m trying to obtain support from this forum, before we can obtain a response from SAP OSS.
    Has anybody experienced something similar?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Javier

    Hi FDK,
    As far as I´m concerned, I promise I will write how we solved it when we get it.
    The news are: at last we could create a customer message to SAP Support, and SAP has told us to:
    1) Ensure that our Solution Manager is in a sufficiently high SP Stack level. In our case, as we have a Sol. Manager based on NW 7 EHP 1 with SP Stack level 20, they are asking us to apply SP Stack level 22 as first meassure.
    2) In case we cannot afford to do the mentioned meassure immediately, then they suggest us another possibly working option: to downgrade our SPAM 4.6C from level 50 to 48. There is a SAP Note that explains how a reimport of a Support Package for SPAM can be done (and it seems like it´s even possible to downgrade the SPAM level, I didn´t know that):
    SAP Note 684564: Re-importing a SPAM/SAINT update
    So, now we are working on these suggestions. As the Solution Manager is really not "ours", but belongs to our SAP VAR (partner), we need to wait until they can schedule this technical task.
    So, right now the immediate task I´m trying to perform is downgrading our  SPAM 4.6C from level 50 to 48.
    But, I have a problem and have just let know it to SAP in the customer message: I have no way to get such level 48 of SPAM 46C. SAP always only hosts the last (or the 2 most recent as much) version of SPAM in the Software Download Center of SAP Service Marketplace. Thus, right now if you navigate in SAP Service Marketplace you´ll only find the 50 level version of SPAM 4.6C. I´m again waiting for SAP ´s response concerning this.
    Best regards,
    Javier

  • Login Error after Upgrading from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0

    Hi Experts,
    We have carried out an upgrade from BW 3.5 to BI 7.0.
    After Upgrade we are not able to login using SAP GUI. we are getting an error saying..
    Username or Password not Valid..
    During the upgrade (in Netweaver 2004s ) is there procedure necessary to be followed, which we could have missed..
    Your response will be greatly appreciated.
    Regards

    Hi
    Thanks a lot for your reponse.
    Basically I am able to login thru sap* / ddic and can unlock the users / reset the password.
    But the customer wants to know why the user is getting locked and it happened because of any procedure miss whil performing the upgrade..
    if it is usual that users get locked during upgrade, any SAP Notes to refer..
    Thanks a lot for helping in this community.
    Best Regards

  • BSI Tax Factory upgrade from 9.0 to BSI 10D directly??

    Hi Experts,
    I know most of the BSI customers have upgraded from Tax Factory 9.0 to BSI Tax Factory 10.0 as BSI 9.0 support is going to be end of this November 30(2014)..We understand that there is new feature came up BSI 10.0 which is Browser based login to the BSI 10 which runs based Tomcat XML services which needs to be installed on the central windows server server and should be up and running for 24/7..which became a little budget issue for our cllient..
    Client dont want go for buying new windows servers for installation of Tom cat services exclusively..Because of all these constraints we have decided to go to BSI 10D which is having GUI logon feature like BSI 9.0 intead of Tom cat xml services for browser based which is released on 26th July 2014..
    So here My question is ..Is there a possibility to upgrade from 9.0 to 10d directly?? If yes what is the procedure to upgrade from BSI  9.0 to 10d..
    Your inputs in this Upgrade can be really highly appreciated
    Thanks

    Hi Naresh Gollapelly,
    This is also helpful for you 
    SAP has released SAP Note 1875218, which contains the roadmap for BSI TaxFactory 10.0.
    SAP has released the following Notes to allow for the integration of the Payroll U.S. solution with BSI TaxFactory 10.0:
    SAP Note 1903607 (Phase 1 delivery)
    SAP Note 1909014 (Phase 2 delivery)
    SAP Note 1934840 (Phase 3 delivery)
    SAP Note 1937142 (Nonresident Worked Days parameters)
    Installation and Upgrade Notes
    IMPORTANT: For customers with business in Puerto Rico we recommend to wait with an upgrade from BSI TaxFactory 9.0 to BSI TaxFactory 10.0 until cyclic 10.c is available. BSI is planning to release cyclic 10.c (Christmas Bonus) by end of February for certification. The certification will take around 15 days. After the successful certification, BSI will make the executables of BS TF 10.c available.
