    10.3.3 Upgrade Issue


      Currently on 10.1 on E:Tableau Server/10.1

      Downloading 10.3.3 upgrade executable


      When i run the Setup is not able to identify that i already have 10.1 and it moves onto a fresh installation


      what am i missing or doing wrong?

          Hi Jyoti


          I notice you reference your current install is on the E:/ directory.  Are you sure you've indicated this is the directory as part of the install?


          From the Server Install Guide Prepare for the Upgrade

            When i click on the Setup

            First thing it does is asks  Where to Install

            In there i select - E:Tableau Server

            as i remember to not put the version number


            Than a Prompt comes up that tells

            Your Hardware meets the minimum requirement for a Trial

            below are the two screenshots

            Also i dont understand, why I am getting a minimum hard ware requirement note- as I ran 10.1.3 on this for 1 year

              Is that a typo or are you installing to E:/Tableau Server/Tableau Server as if original install is E:/Tableau Server then there's a discrepancy...?


              Can't comment on your hardware spec.  Can you be certain you didn't get this same message when you installed v10.1?  I don't believe there's been a change in the recommended h/w spec since moving to v10.0.

                So I did it on

                E:Tableau Server


                but it still brought the same prompt

                should i still go ahead and install?, will it migrate my repository from 10.1 folder?

                  HI Jyoti


                  Is it just the presence of the hardware spec message that makes you think it's doing a fresh install or something else.  I've just recently upgraded our low spec POC server from 10.1.1 to 10.3.1, installing to the default location though.  I also got the same hardware spec warning which I accepted and the 'upgrade' went through fine, migrating all the data over.


                  I'm assuming since the hardware is below spec that this isn't your production environment you're upgrading.

                    Hi Jyoti,


                    I also faced the same issue and ended up installing a newer one rather than upgrading.


                    Resolution in your case should be -

                    Just browse to "E" drive.....Tableau automatically appends "Tableau Server" to the path browsed by you and creates a <version number> folder in it.


                    So to summarize -

                    Original Location - E:\Tableau Server\10.1

                    Browse to - E

                    Tableau automatically appends  - Tableau Server

                    After successful up gradation - E:\Tableau Server\<version number>


                    This makes sure we don't install a brand new server and just upgrade the existing one.
