Hi A chat,
Yes, we have tested the upgrade in our premises and the new server 10.5.2 will have exactly similar configurations as previous server configuration such as SMTP details, subscriptions, schedules, fodders, user security.
After upgrading Tableau Server, your users might notice or report that their .tde extracts have been changed to a new .hyper format; or they might receive error messages that mention this new .hyper extract format. This extract file conversion is a part of the improved data engine, it will help Tableau users create and refresh larger extracts faster.
The black circle indicates that the extract will be converted to .hyper format.
Hi Sankar/A Chat,
I have a plan of upgrading from 10.3 to 10.5 Server. But i am worrying about one of my workbooks. Because one particular workbook is having almost 300 subscriptions in my server. So before upgrading i want to make sure my existing subscriptions should not break with the new upgrade.
Could you please let me know how this affect.
We have successfully completed an upgrade to 10.5.3 and then to 2018.1 last week. There are no changes in any subscription, schedule, workbook, SSL, SMTP etc configurations.
Just an IMP note - if you are upgrading the server which is installed at a non-default location like (D or E drive), please make sure to select the right path while browsing folders.
In my case -
Original Path – D:\Programs\Tableau\Tableau Server\10.1\bin
Browse to - D:\Programs\Tableau (please note that it automatically appends Tableau server folder with the browsed path and creates a new folder with a name 2018.1 )
New path - D:\Programs\Tableau\Tableau Server\2018.1\bin
It will stay as it is and extract will change to hyper extract. Your performance will increase once upgrade to 10.5
