Then run the Rule Schema(Copy of Production rules ) and Data-Schema (from Pre-Prod) Upgrade process in Pre-Prod Import the SI framework Import E& I Rule Book Import BIX Import Upgrade Application RAP Bring down production system Copy the upgraded Rule Schema from Pre-Prod Environment back to Production Rule-Schema and then do the Data only Upgrade in production We have doubts if this is going to work with SI Framework in place , are there any specific data instances that are loaded into Data Schema while importing SI and E&I Rule book jars. If Yes, Can we get the list of instances that can be loaded separately into application post Copying the rules schema and before Data Schema upgrade in production.

There are steps in the deployment guide that talk about how to do this type of upgrade.
