We have just completed our UAT/CRP for the upgrade from 10.2.500.x to 2022.1.x and will be upgrading this weekend. My team member who is responsible for doing the actual upgrade has noticed that it is taking excessive time for this upgrade (more than normal). Epicor says it should take approximately an hour but in our case, it’s taking about 10 (10 times longer!). We are on-prem. Has anyone else noticed this? Anything we should take a look at that might help to speed things up?
And I’ve noticed that if you have a complicated GL Chart (and thereby a LOT of GL transactions) the GL conversion process during the DB upgrade just takes forever. Our GL conversion takes longer than all the other scripts combined.
But I agree with the others also - indexes, turn off replication (for AFR or anything else), set to Simple backup instead of Full - all of these things will help.
And best of luck with the whole thing this weekend!!!
