Use 3rd Party Tools To Push MWM Client Updates and Ensure Server and Client Are The Same Version (Doc ID 1399542.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 24, 2012

Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management - Version: 1.4.5 to 2.1.0 - Release: 1.4 to 2.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Scenario: If I upgrade an MWM version on the server, I have to install the new version on the clients. We have 50 crews in service that have different operational bases. Receiving the phones, installing the application and distributing them can leave us without MWM a couple of days. We have no replacement phones for all crews in order to install the new application and deploy these before the server upgrade. Is there any way to upgrade that requires less downtime?  Can different versions of client and server work together during the rollout? For example, a client 2.1 connecting to a server 2.0.1.5, or viceversa.
