upgrade Solutions Enabler - getting symcfg discover error message

if you get this message after upgrading solutions enabler and trying to refresh the database via symcfg discover, then do the following:

# /usr/symcli/bin/symcfg discover
The SYMAPI database file cannot be used because it was written by a version of SYMAPI that is no longer supported

then do this:
> /var/symapi/db/symapi_db.bin

That's the same as doing: cat /dev/null > /var/symapi/db/symapi_db.bin

Now you can do the symcfg discover without errors.
