Upgrade GW2012 to GW2014R2 in a clustered environment

Hi,

there is a GW2012 with two PO in a clustered environment. There are tree GW-
Resources, each with a own Pool-Ressource (GWIA, PO1 and PO2). The DVAs are
running on all Nodes.

Where are the caveats in this upgrade? I have seen a short video which seems
that the upgrade is not a big thing, but i like to ask before I do the task.

I think I can do the upgrade off the software on a node which has no GW-
Ressource loaded? The Software is installed to /opt/novell/... and this is
local to the node. But whats's with the DB? In this case the DB is at the
other node and doesn't realize that GW is upgraded.
Whats with the GW Management Web-Apps? Can I use them at Node 1 during the
ressources are running on Node 2?

and so on...

Bernd,

check the upgrade part of the manual:
https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise2014r2/gw2014_guide_install/data/inst_upgrade_secondary_domain.html
Move all pools to node A, upgrade node B, move resources to node B (note that you probably want to modify the cluster scripts). Once the agents start on the upgraded node, the databases will get get upgraded to 2014. Once node A is without GW resources, upgrade the software on node A. Move the resources hence and forth to see if they work on both nodes.
While you upgrade node B, users can use GW running on node A.
