I’m about to perform an upgrade on an old RT instance (3.8.7) in the hopes of moving to 5.0.0
Essentially, I’m on a new host with a fresh install of RT 5.0.0 but without an initialised DB.
I’ve had the DBA’s at work clone the database to a dev instance and my plan is to point the
rt-setup-database script at this dev copy and give it a try (using the args “–action upgrade --prompt-for-dba-password”).
Noting those args, I see looking inside the scripts that using the upgrade function there is no option to “not use DBA” and I won’t be given DBA privileges, but rather user privileges to everything in the existing RT database (we’re talking oracle here).
Is this merely a programmatic oversight and in-fact it will “just work” without DBA privs (but proving the user creds when prompted), or will things actually fail without true DBA privs?
Everything moves slow here and if I bugger this up, it’ll no doubt be 2 weeks before I get another copy to try again with, so thus why I’m reaching out in the first instance.
Help, info and advice would be really appreciated.
