No, not really, although I have had to shut down all Compaq services before installing (or upgrading) a Domino server.

But you can restart all those services after you install Domino !

Really, Tom?  I dont recall ever having to stop Compaq's services.  I assume you are talking about the management utlities that start as Windows services.

What have you found?
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I must say I don't know what they are all for, but I found I needed to stop everything (all 50 of them :-) ) - it could have something to do with the antivirus, though.  Anyway, just stopping the antivirus is not enough on my Compaq's.  I do have to stop the Compaq services too.  I never really bothered to find out which task was causing the problems, it's antivirus + some compaq task :-)

Funny,  I just did a Notes upgrade on a compaq machine, and there were two Domino files that were open even though I had disabled the Domino service and rebooted, so maybe that ha ssomething to do with Tom's observations.

I found that if I renamed the two files, I could then install.

This was for 5.0.11 -> 5.0.13.
