Windows 2008r2 cluster

Our current system is GW8.0.2 in a Windows 2008r2 cluster. Domains and po's reside on one cluster and GWIA and WA reside on another one. Having a hard time finding specific information on how to upgrade in the Windows cluster environment. I have always used Danita's upgrade guides in the past, but there is no section for clustered systems. The Novell documentation seems to only refer to a new system.

Thanks,
Bill

Assuming those clusters still work the same basic way I last deal with
them, it should just be a matter of running the install on each node
and selecting upgrade for each of the agents on that cluster.

Look at where your agent config files are currently, grabbing backup
copies of them. You might have some manual fiddling with them to keep
them in the correct places. Ideally they are all on the shared storage
so that you only have to update each just once.

Thanks for the input. I thought that may be the case.
