Upgrade the Field Time Database Server

Before upgrading the Field Time database server, open IIS on the application server and turn off the application pool related to Field Time websites. That way the websites will be inaccessible during the upgrade.

  1. On the Field Time database, server browse to the Field Time Database.exe file located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Viewpoint Construction Software\MFM\Setup\Installers.
  2. Double-click the Field Time Database.exe file.
    It may take a few minutes for the system to prepare for installation.
  3. In the Field Time Setup - InstallShield Wizard, click Next.
  4. In the Database Server screen, enter your system administrator credentials.
    For SQL administrators, your system administrator credentials are typically your Windows user credentials.
  5. Click Next.
  6. In the Database Folder screen, click Change to use a different destination folder.
    Be sure this is a valid location that SQL can access. See Add SQL Permissions to the Install Folder for more information.
  7. Click OK, and then click Next.
  8. For new installations, continue with Upgrading Field Time Web.
    For upgrades, continue with Upgrade Installations.
