DP 5.1 Upgrade to 5.5 or 6.0?

Jump to solution
Hello,

we have some Problems with DP 5.1 which can only be fixed with a newer DP version (DP 5.1 does only support 599 backup specifications).

At the current time, which DP whould you all recommend? DP 6 seems to unstable and has some RDS.EXE and SAP problems.

5.5 should be very stable by now. Or are there some problems with 5.5 which make it unstable/problematic to use?

We use DP for Filesystem, Exchange 2000, SAP, MSSQL 2000.

Regards,
Markus

5.5 has been rock solid for us from Day 1. (Once we figured out how to lock-down the Windows TUR issue ).

Exchange 2003, HP-UX clusters w/custom start/stop scripts for DP, Tru64 clusters w/custom start/stop scripts for DP, Windows 2003 SP1 clusters, VLS's, EML, large daily copy jobs.

but... we need to upgrade to 6.0 for similar reasons to your need to move off of 5.1. I wish I had the dollars to phase it in (second cell) instead of hold-my-breath and go...

Thanks,

I was told to expect 6.1 around October, this year. I was also told that it is supposed to be fixes of 6.0, not much in terms of new functionality. But again, this is more hear say than anything, since I didn't see it in writing.

Based on what I've seen, 6.1 is a long way away and most certainly not just a "maintenance" release.
