I will be upgrading our design from SW 2015 SP 5.0 and EPDM 2015 SP 5.0 to SW 2017 SP 1.0 and SPDM 2017, on Friday evening into Saturday. Anyone have any insights on things to look out for with the 2017 upgrade? I did the original testing, initial install, and migration so I am confident in our end.


We have all users checking in all files by an assigned time.

  • Backup everything.
  • License serve is already complete.
  • Archive server upgrade.
  • Database Server upgrade (should be done at the same time as Archive).
  • Upgrade File Vault.
  • Upgrading PDM client machines
  • Upgrading SolidWorks which captures our lovely toolbox.


  • TEST on machines.



This should go smoothly considering we're prepared.
