Struggling with a R5 to R6 upgrade and are following all the guidelines in the Redbook.

Im nearly completing the upgrade of the administration server, and the mailserver is due next - but the question is - how much needs to be done to the mailserver compared to the administration server  ?
Ie do I have to apply special steps to the names.nsf to that too and do I have to run "nupdall -RX" on all users maildatabases ??

Please advice

Thanks
Michael

If you pull a fresh replica onto the mail server from a client, then you can probably skip that step for names.nsf

The nupdall -RX is recommended I think as  preventative measure.
When are you planning to upgrade the mail templates ? If you do it soon , you can probably skip that step.


I hope this helps !

Hi SysExpert,

I've already done the upgrade - I was in a bit of a hurry :)

I'm having trouble finding the new items in the directory user interface - like ie fault recovery and the security tab - do you know where to find them ?

Thanks
Michael

Hi Bojerne,
> Fault recovery

 1.    From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab, and expand the Server section.
  2.    Open the Server document, click Edit Server, and click the Basics tab.
  3.    In the Fault Recovery section, check "Automatically Restart Server After Fault/Crash Enabled."
  4.    Save and close the document.

Also, you probably know to set the service in the operating system to restart, too.

In Domino Administrator
Click on the servers icon
    -Click on your server
    -Click on Configuration tab
    -Expand Server
    -Select All Server Documents
    -Select your server configuration document and open it.
    -The security tab is the second one.
------------------------------------------
The only thing I would check on in the clients is the design of the archive and local mail files, and also instruct people on how to migrate their private folders to R6 folders.  There is an "Upgrade Folder Design" action in the mail file that all should run on their mail files to prevent odd errors from surfacing.  

Other than that, you can configure profiles to configure their workspace and push down other changes to the clients.  

Pretty painless, isn't it?  

The custom databases: if you don't have time to check them before you migrate them, then migrate them as .ns5 and push a new icon/bookmark down to the clients (if you keep the replica ID, then they will click on it, and should be able to access it.  If there are hardcoded references to the filename in the application, you're going to have to search and replace - use TeamStudio Configurator or Ytria scanez to accomplish this quickly.

Let us know if you require further assistance!

Regards!

Hi Marilyng,

Well, I guess it should be pretty painless :)

But there's no Fault Recovery section on the Basics tab, and the security tab is not present either - the second tab is Smart upgrade

Please advice

Sorry my mistake - went into the document through Configurations, and not via All server documents - why the difference ?

Thanks
