PRD Upgrade strategy keeping the original 4.7 PRD Intact

This is our plan for our PRD Upgrade.
For our Upgrade, we are planning to keep the Live Productive 4.7 System Intact.
We plan to take a Copy of the Live Productive 4.7 System and then Upgrade this Copy.
Copy will be taken using Full File System Backup and Restore on a separate Server.
Now my plan is, I plan to complete the below Roadmap Steps-Initialization, Extraction, Configuration, Checks and Preprocessing in the Live Productive Instance. Doing this I save wasting time in Business Downtime.
After Preprocessing Step is over, I wll get Business Downtime. I will do a Full File System Backup,Restore to a separate Server(will take 4 hrs approx).
And then go ahead with Downtime Step and ahead and complete the Upgrade.Which will take 14 hrs approx.
So a Business downtime of 48hrs will be enough.
My question is, can I run the Roadmap Steps from Initialization to Preprocessing on the Live Production which is hosted on hostname hostecc1. Then, take Business Downtime, do a full Filesystem Backup and Restore it on another host (hostname hostecc2). Continue the upgrade (from Step Downtime) and complete it on that particular host?
Doing this, I achieve 2 goals:
1. My original Production is Intact,
2: I save time by not performing all the Roadmap Steps in the host hostecc2, which will take hours and will not be feasible to get so much of Business Downtime

I was looking out for this.
Once i enter the Business downtime and complete the copy to host2, my host1 is anyways not used. So, I will plug host1 server off my LAN. I can now change the hostname of host2 to host1 and continue the Upgrade.
Then once Upgrade is completed, I will take the export. Once export is completed, I will plug host2(now host1) off the LAN and I will change the hostname of original host1 back to its original. And perform Import. Ofcourse, Parallel exp-imp wont be possible.
Makes sense?
Do you forsee any other issues apart from the hostname?
I dont think there can be any other issue.
To your suggestion - If i do copy first and then the Upgrade and then UC , it will be a long affair and we wont get so much of Business Downtime.
Looking forward tou your inputs.

  • ITunes no longers asks "Do you want to keep the original file or move to trash?" - Can this be fixed?

    I'm not sure if this was a recent update in Mavericks, but when I used to delete items from iTunes it would ask something along the lines of:
    Do you want to keep the original file or move to trash?
    Now I no longer get this, instead iTunes asks:
    Are you sure you want to delete the selected song from your iTunes library?
    After which, if you choose the option "Delete Song", you get no option to keep the original file, it just straight up deletes if from my library and hard drive. Does anyone know if there is a way around this? For whatever reason, I want to be able to keep the original file on my Mac, without keeping it in my iTunes library.
    I've tried resetting dialogue warning, and this hasn't made a difference.

  • HT2204 My husband and I have the same apple id. We would like to each have our own. He will keep the original one, but how do I get a new apple Id and keep all the things I have associated with the old apple id?

    My husband and I use the same apple Id. We would like to each have our own apple id, but we do not want to lose all our information associated with the current id. One of us will keep the original. If one us creates a new apple id how will that affect the iPhone and iTunes?

    That would be my suggestion.  Just keep using the common one for purchases in the stores.  Then each get another AppleID using a free gmail, AOL, hotmail, MS Live or whatever email account.
    Delete your current iCloud account and login with the new AppleID, and logout of Messaging and then backin with the new AppleID.  Now you have a shared iTunes/App store account, but completely separate, independent iCloud and iMessage accounts.
    You can still share calendars if you wish to, even across separate accounts -

  • How to export a file keeping the original timecode

    Hello all,
    I'm struggling to find out the way to do the following:
    I have an entire footage file and from that I need to cut specific interviews to be translated however I must keep the original timecode where I extracted these interviews from so the editor knows where to place the subtitles (as s/he will be using the file as a whole and because it is a foreign language they won't know the correct place).
    Does anyone know how to do this? Using FCP7 btw.
    Thank you so so much!!!

    You cannot export a single QT file that has multiple timecodes embedded into it.  What you can do is drop on the TIMECODE READER filters onto the clips so that they visibly show the timecode on the screen as reference.

  • How to keep the original sequence of a map

    I want the equivalent of a Hashtable or Map class (I need keys and corresponding objects) which, once fully populated, will guarantee to get the key/object pairs back out using the order in which they were added, rather than by sort order of the keys.
    ( The bigger objective is to compare two such collections, A and B, to see which key/object pairs exist in A but not B, and which exist in B but not A. However, for presentation purposes, I need to keep the original order in which everything was read.)
    What's the most efficient way to do this ? I'm sure I've missed something really simplistic but, hey, it's Monday......

    There is no way to retrieve objects from any map in the order they were incerted unless you add some logic to the way you are incering it.
    Here is an example of such logic, where I want to retrieve "states" in the same order as I put them:
         public static void main(String[] args){
              HashMap map = new HashMap();
              map.put("1" + "PA", "Pensylvania");
              map.put("2" + "NJ", "New Jersey");
              map.put("3" + "CA", "California");
              map.put("4" + "TX", "Texas");
              LinkedList ls = new LinkedList(map.keySet());
              Iterator iter = ls.iterator();
             String stAbbrv = null;
              while (iter.hasNext()){
                   stAbbrv = (String);
                   System.out.println(stAbbrv.substring(1) + " - " + map.get(stAbbrv));
         }the output is:
    PA - Pensylvania
    NJ - New Jersey
    CA - California
    TX - TexasHope it helps

  • Print to file, keeping the original filename

    Lightroom – Print mode - Print to JPEG file - Print to file. Use: All filmstrip photos. Question: How do I Print to file and save all filmstrip photos with the original names? Seemingly I can only do so image by image by typing the original name. Furthermore the original name is not saved in the metadata when using Print to file. I want to print multiple photos keeping the original name andI do not mind if a digit is added to the end of the name. It should be possible non? I never do away with the original name.

  • Acrobat 5.0 How do I keep the original file name after I have converted a Word doc to PDF?

    MY colleague has a certain setting in Acrobat that allows him to keep the original file name when he converts documents from Word to PDF. Every time I convert Word, Acrobat overwrites the filename and names it "untitled.pdf". I would like to retain the original name and for Acrobat to simply add the .pdf file extension to the original name. How do I do this?

    I have no idea what you are doing for sure. Does your WORD document have a name. I opened a WORD document and selected the Acrobat Distiller printer for AA5, I got the file menu for selecting the name and it was automatically filled in with the DOC changed to PDF. If you are using PDF Maker, then you will need to search there - I removed PDF Maker for AA5 years ago and can't view that part. I see the same types of options in PDF Maker for AA8.1.2 as I saw in the printer for AA5 and guess it is the same. The untitled.pdf suggests that you never saved the original DOC file so it has a name.

  • How do I keep the original pre-RAW preview exposure ?

    IF I understand it when I imort a RAW "NEF file from my Nikon, LIghtroom shows a preview that is a jpeg exposre, something equivalent to a point and shoot photo. Then after processing the info from the RAW file, it shows the unprocessed image. Typically, this image for me becomes unsaturated and less colorful. Although I want to process "some" of my photos, I like some of the point and shoot images, and I'm wondering how do you keep the original exposiure that LIghtroom shows before showing the RAW unprocessed image?
    When I'm taking photos just to archive a thing, I like the advanced point and shoot saturated image. When I want to be artistic, I prefer to process them myself. Is there a setting that will allow me to keep the preview look?

    Aside from what Lee Jay said (which is technically accurate) the best thing you can do is to learn how to quickly make image adjustments and if you find you are making the same adjustments all the time, create a preset or consider making a new Default tone/color adjustment for your images. The fact is that the EFIX JPEG is the camera maker's interpretation of the raw image. It's neither accurate nor sacrosanct. It's simply a different rendering of your raw data. You can look at using different DNG profiles (in the Camera Calibrate panel) to alter the color rendering and adjust your tone controls to taste and make a preset or a new Default.
    But in answer to your main question can you use those JPEG previews as a basis for LR, no other than you make the manual adjustments yourself...

  • How do i keep the original manual sort of my photos that i had in previous library after a rebuild in iphoto library manager?

    how do i keep the original manual sort of my photos that i had in previous library after a rebuild in iphoto library manager? and keep the events in the same order with blank events also

    Not sure you can.
    Library Manager creates an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.

  • Import clips into FCP X version 10.0.8 and keep the original clip names

    Can you Import clips into FCP X version 10.0.8 and keep the original clip names in the event original media folder? in version 10.0.8 it automatically allocates date / time of the event. I need it to keep the original clip name i:e Clip0100 event folder original media Clip0100. I am aware you can change the clip name to original once in FCP X, But it's the event folder original media name which I want to remain as the original file name.

    Hi Tom,
    Thanks for the response.
    I am aware you can do this change in the Info inspector so the original clip name from camera is used in the event library browser, but it does not change the clip name in the Final Cut Events Original Mieda file. This still remains as an event clip name "2013-05-23 17_08_13". I need the original clip name Clip0100 to remain as Clip0100 at import. FCP X doesn't seem to allow this happen any more in version 10.0.8.
