| | Upgrading Domino Prior to Upgrading BES
Please Login to Remove!
I believe that this question may have been answered in another post I saw. However, I will ask to be more certain. I'm running BES 2.2.4 on Domino 6.0.1 and intend to end up at BES 4.1 on Domino 6.5.5 (on the same piece of hardware.)
Normally, when upgrading Domino, I uninstall the obsolete Domino version, preserving the notes.ini file and the data folder(s). Then install the new Domino version, copy the preserved notes.ini file into the program folder and start up the server -- normally works without a hitch. Any reason to do it differently in this scenario?
Presumably, if I do this I can bring the server back up with Domino 6.5.5 and BES 2.2.4 functional. Then I can down the Domino server and do an in-place upgrade of BES to 4.1 and get on with business. Right?
