Upgrading system from IQ Bot 5.0.x to 5.1.x

Find out how to upgrade your system from IQ Bot 5.0.x to 5.1.x


  • Perform the following tasks on a machine that has MS SQL database installed.
  • The MS SQL server database must belong to the same version on the source and destination database servers.
  • Before restoring the database, stop all IQ Bot services and ensure none of the services are running.
  • Have the migration utility available for use, consisting of the following batch files required for upgrade:
    • Backup_DB.BAT
    • Restor_DB.BAT
Note: The migration utility script supports migration of learning instances and bots from one IQ Bot v5.1.x installation instance to another IQ Bot v5.1.x installation instance. It does not work for migration from IQ Bot 5.0.x to IQ Bot 5.1.x.
This task walks you through the steps to upgrade your IQ Bot system from version 5.0.x to 5.1.x.
