Problem starting production after upgrade cache to iris


We upgrade from CACHE 2016 to IRIS 2021 and when we try to start a production gives the error behind.

I think the error could be that the Ens.Director is deprecated on IRIS 2021, is this possible?

Ens.Director definitely still exists in IRIS. That error means the "%Library.CacheStorage" class doesn't exist. I don't know why that class would be called, however, as it has been replaced by %Library.Persistent by comparing CE / IRIS docs.

Are you sure your in-place migration completed successfully? I assume Ens.Director should try to use the corresponding class in IRIS. I think this is a candidate for WRC investigation.

Now that you mention it, I think you have not followed a supported migration path. You can find details in the IRIS migration guides available in the WRC distributions page's documents section, but the minimum version to migrate in-place from is 2016.2.x, and it can be used to go to IRIS 2019.1.1+ or 2020.1. It does not support migration directly to 2021.1.

Actually, reviewing more closely, it looks like your version string is for Unified Care Record / Patient Index. That has a different set of requirements than the basic IRIS migration. I'd recommend closely reviewing the HealthShare documentation - I'm not personally very familiar with the HealthShare side of things, but I'm fairly certain there is a version plateau for HealthShare to allow for the move to IRIS.


this doc page at least is relevant:

Unified Care Record Installation and Migration Guide > Preparing for an Upgrade Installation

"If you are upgrading from a Caché-based Unified Care Record or Information Exchange system earlier than version 2019.1, you must first upgrade to the plateau version 2019.1 before upgrading to this release."
