I came across this post as I was searching for details regarding my PT upgrade. We are in 5.6.1 and upgrading PT from 8.48 to 8.52 and moving to new Linux server. Where can I find the white paper that you mentioned in earlier post? Can you pls let me know?
I see your point - I could not find the paper either! I'll get it posted asap. However in the meantime, please Private Message me at William.Hart@quest.com and I will send you the paper directly.

I will suggest following two things, that may help you deciding your upgrade.
1. Upgrade the stage database instead of creating a new one which will reduce lots of other setups. But with said that you may have to look into the specifications your current database is in. If it is an older version of Oracle/Sql, you may need to upgrade to higher version to be compliant with Stat and Peopletools.
2. Upgrade Stat to latest version (5.6.3 or 5.6.4) so that you may not have to plan an upgrade in near future, I may say for next 6 to 12 months or more.
When you are waiting for the whitepaper for details for upgrade, I have small tip for the upgrade.
You may need to Upgrade your tools in 3 phase
5.4.2 -> 5.5.0 ->5.6.0-> 5.6.3/5.6.4
Also during the intermediate upgrade stages, you don`t need to set agents and other steps. You can raise a support ticket with quest and they will guide you thru the detailed process. Its not that tough and will take hardly a day to configure all these setup.
