Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
If you have this application installed on both servers you should do the following..
- From App Admin Console, Right click the program/s remove 1 of the servers from the available servers
If you have all applicaitons hosted across both servers you can also put the entire server into maintenance mode
- From the server that you removed from the published app, open a command prompt (run as administrator)
- Type: change user /install
- Launch the applicaiton
- Continue throught the Install/upgrade process
- Once it is finished type change user /execute
- Add the server back to the published application available servers
- Remove the second server from the available servers list and start the process on the next server

Do the above steps for all of the applications that are you installing / upgrading on your servers

On 6.5 servers you can directly upgrade the software, Only you have to make sure when you update software disable logon once you done then enable logon on server.

ok, so I don't need to do anything but upgrade the programs on the server I want them published on?  No change user commands or do both what Will and you are suggesting?
