    Answered Binary D&L from 10.2B08 to 11.7.5

    We are moving a customer to a new server and converting the db from 10.2.B08 to 11.7.5. Is it possible to do a binary dump on the 10.2.B08 server and load the binaries directly into the 11.7.5 db or do we need to move the db to the new server, conv1011, then do the dump and load into an empty...

    Sanity Checks On Db Layout And B2 For Upgrade

    I know this has been covered before (perhaps ad nauseum), but it never hurts to get ask. I am in the process of preparing for a upgrade for a 400+GB db from 10.2B08 to 11.7.1 (or .2 or whatever is available when the upgrade happens by year end). Many moons ago we set them up with type II...

    Question Cannot Kill Batch Job

    RHEL OE10.2B08 We have a number of OE background processes running on the server. We ran into a situation this morning (and have the same issue every once in a blue moon) where we cannot kill the job. Using various levels of kill (but not -9), the job just won't go away. I then used promon...

    Comment Progress Analytics 360 pricing

    A small rant... After viewing the webinar on Analytics 360 BI, we thought it might be a good fit for a number of our customers. So we asked our friendly Progress sales rep for pricing... but I was rather taken aback from the quote of $20K to $50K per annum. Not a one time with maintenance...

    Question UPS Tracking API integration with ABL ?

    Has anyone successfully created web services ABL code that works with the UPS Tracking API? I'm asking for any hints or ideas as to what is or is not going on or if somehow I need to do some hacking within the wsdl they provided. (I can include the wsdl here if it would help). I was able to...

    Question Type II cluster size and D&L vs. Multi-threaded For Each

    As posted previously, we are in the process of converting one of our customer's 10.2B to 11.3.x (Redhat). The DB will reside on SSD's, bi's and ai's on separate disks and we have 24 cores and 32GB of memory. We will have a weekend to do all that needs to be done, and the db must be up and...

    Question Yet another question on licensing and Appserver

    We have a new Progress rep (yet again) and we are trying to determine what Appserver product and licensing model we need to get. Our customer is very small (Workgroups 10.2B about 25 users). The current license for the DB is concurrent user. We are in the process of designing/co-developing...

    Question Recommendations for geocoding US addresses

    While not really a Progress issue (and perhaps this should go in the API section?), does anyone have any recommendations for geocoding US addresses? We have a group of customers that require geocoding US addresses to get latitude/longitude by year's end. They would not be used for mapping or...

    Underline a word in a report

    Does anyone know of a method within the ABL in a non-Windows environment to underline (solid underscore) a word, series of words, or column header in a simple text report rather than using the old standby as dashes in the line following? I've looked in the kbase and googled, but cannot seem to...

    New Progress SupportLink Kbase?

    Maybe it's just me, but does anyone else find the new SupportLink kbase more user-unfriendly with less options than before (no email, no direct lookup of error numbers, etc etc). I could go into detail of all the little annoyances that were not present before it was moved to ...
