Currently our company are trying to upgrade Primavera P6 EPPM v7.4 to v15.2 or v16 (using Microsoft SQL database) because it hard to find Primavera P6 consultant in our area, my management ask me to do the upgrading process. I am not an IT guy. So  due to the huge gap between those version, I afraid if we upgrade the database incorrectly some error or problem will occur. Does anyone have experience any problem when you upgrade your P6 database? I tried to contact Oracle throught thier help line but didn't get any feedback until now.

I wish to get help as soon as possible.

dbconfig.exe will not let you migrate from on version to the next can install a new database within the current version.

Run the upgrade file on your existing SQL database prior to installing Primavera V16. File named dbconfig.exe. This should run code on your DB to allow correct connection with the new Primavera installation.
