Summary0003329: Unsuccessful upgrade from 3.7 to 3.8

Dear Sirs

We Currently Successfully Run SymmetricDS 3.7.2 between a PostgreSql Master to Sybase Target and it works very Well.

Recently my developers attempted to Upgrade to SymmetricDS 3.8.29 and it failed.

They Followed The Brief Instructions found in the Manual Under F.1 Full Upgrade.

However, I would like to understand if there are Any Steps in the Initial Startup of a Upgraded SymmetricDS.

They Did exactly the Steps 1 thru 7,

However when SymmetricDS Restarted (or was Started as we have normally Start it) We Ran into an issue because the version of Postgresql jdbc driver we used referred to a system level column that was removed in the Database System Table in Postgres v9, So we got all these Errors

[PostgreSqlDdlReader] [symmetric-engine-startup-0] Failed to read table: sym_node_identity. Error: ERROR: column t1.tgisconstraint does not exist

We figured out the issue, and upgraded the JDBC Driver and Re-Started again.

I can See in the Logs that SymmetricDS attempts to alter the Sym_ Tables and Drop Some ..etc.

However I saw These Messages

    2017-09-21 16:07:48,835 WARN [gras-001] [AseDdlBuilder] [symmetric-engine-startup-1] Data cannot be retained in table sym_node_communication because of the addition of the required column queue .

And Symmds would not start and work

So We Restored the 3.7.2 Software, and I dropped all sym_ Tables in Source/Target and BAsically Restarted from Scratch the installation

We Want to Try this Again (with the Proper JDBC Driver)

However, I would like to know what the Appropriate steps for Restart should be in order to Upgrade the Software/Sym schema without having to lose my existing configuration.

Please let me know

Thank you
