Replication in mixed inviorments

Hi All,

I have upgraded one of my servers to Notes 5.03.
All my other servers are 4.51,4.57,4.63
How am I suppose to configure the replication of the NAB so each version won't influence the design of the other but the documents will be updated.

Please help.
I'll be also happy if you could send me some links to relevant place where I can find more info about R5.

Thanks a lot.
Orp.

I have a similar environment.. Heres what I have done...

Created two groups on Called "R5Servers" and the other "R4Servers", the "r5servers" group contains all the r5 servers and the "R4Servers" contains all of the R4 Servers , on any of the R5 servers NAB replicas I have the "R5Servers" Group as a manger and R4Servers as editors and on any r4 server replica I have the  "r4servers" group as a manager and the r5servers group as an editor..

Also I removed localdomainserver from the ACLs ( obviously ) ..

This means that any r5 server can replicate with any r5 server and design elements will be replicated but only data is replicated with r4 servers and visa-versa

The only thing is you need to make sure that you do not replicate r4->r5 or r5-> r4 via your client because you are a manager and design elements will replicate..

Obvously the more unique templates you have for your NAB the more groups you will need , but the result is much the same... At first I was worried about extra data ( such as r5 holidays ) replicating to my r4 replciates , but it didn't make any problems so I just left it...

Hope this helps...
