We have Domino 5.0.7 server and we need to update the server to 5.0.12. Our server need 5.0.12 to run new symantec AV for Domino to protect from virus today. however, in order to update, we need 5.0.7to5.0.7a update and 5.0.7ato5.0.8 update.
Is it possible to obtain hte updates? We do have the license but we do not subscribe to the Lotus Advantage program. Help.

As per I understood, u are running 5.0.7 and u need to upgrade to 5.0.12. U have Symantec for 5.0.12. Am I correct.

Taking the above assumptions, it is very simple to upgrade.
Plug out all the network cables.
then shutdown domino server
Take the backup of entire notes folder.
Install 5.0.12 server
Now, from backup, copy admin.id, server.id, cert.id, notes.ini, names.nsf

now, run server and it propmpts to upgrade addressbook. Click Yes.

and voila, u are up running with 5.0.12

Well, it's actually a lot simpler than what maddy says

- Don't try to do incremental upgrades .   You'll need too many steps, and it probably won't work

- So install a fresh 5.0.12 ON TOP of your current installation :
- stop Domino
- backup everything (or copy it somewhere you can access it easily, a fileshare will do fine)
- install 5.0.12 over your current Domino installation (same program/data directories)
- start domino
- answer 'yes' to all question about upgrading the design

That's it.  If it doesn't work, you'll still have the backup ....

cheers,

Tom

Tom,
what I said is same and no difference.

And one thing u left, When u install server, it creates names.nsf, notes.ini. Am I correct?
For that I told to replace them.

We want to upgrade to 5.0.12 but we do not have the media. Does anybody have 5.0.7to5.0.7a update so that we can download the rest of the patches up to 5.0.12 from Lotus?

Maddy, no, if you install a server over an existing installation, it keeps names.nsf and notes.ini, that's why I say you have too many steps  ....

Kiida, don't do the incremental upgrade thing - it's too much trouble (I promise you - it probably won't even work).  Get a 5.0.12 - download it from passportadvantage or ask your business partner

cheers,

Tom

I just see you already ordered it, just get the login/password for the passportadvantage site - you can download it there.

kiida ,
May I know what made you to grade "C"?

I have given you all the info it needs to upgrade. And you did not asked further questions. If you don't have any objections to change the Grade to "A", please post a question with this question link in Community support (which is free) and ask to changer it to "A".

thanks,
maddy.
