Upgrade OES2 to OES11 Cluster

Hi all,

we plan to upgrade our 2-node Cluster running on OES2SP3 x64 to current
version running on OES11SP1. The cluster provides GroupWise, File and iPrint
Services and is connected via QLogic iSCSI HBA to our SAN.

What would you recommend how the Upgrade could be done without major
trouble?


Thanks in advance

Alex

There should be no trouble at all. Move all ressources to one Node, then
update the free node to OES11 as documented, move ressources to the
upgraded server, test, then do the same with the other node. But I
suggest use SP2 instead of SP1. There's really not much special on a
cluster node vs a "normal" server.

One thing you may need to check into is iPrint. If it's fully clustered,
your weg data of iPrint will reside on a clustered volume, which however
will never be available on the node that's currently upgraded, so you
likely end up with the old iPrint stuff there. Yuo may want to re-run
the iprint cluster setup script again (or if you feel able to, copy the
local iPrint data over to the cluster volume).
