Changing DFM Installation Path Before Upgrading

Currently Being Moderated


We are currently on DFM (4.0.2D12) and are planning to upgrade to the On Command 5.1 suite soon.  We will likely install version 5.1 on a new server, and I would like to install it in a different location than our current 4.0.2 is installed in.  I ran across this in the Installation and Setup Guide on page 79:



If you are upgrading to the OnCommand Core Package while also migrating to a new system,

you should use the original DataFabric Manager server installation path to avoid errors caused

by changes to the path setting option for DataFabric Manager server databases.



If I use the dfm datastore setup command to move our existing DFM installation to the desired path before we upgrade, will that alleviate the issue raised above?  Does the dfm datastore setup command move everything in a DFM installation (assuming you don't specify that you only want to move a particular object)?  Any help will be greatly appreciated!
