How do I handle hub servers during R6 upgrade?
I am planning to upgrade four Domino R5 servers to Domino 6.5.4. I plan to upgrade the main server first and then the hub servers. Do I have to do anything to the hub servers before or after I have upgraded the main server to ensure a smooth upgrade (i.e., names.nsf, replication tasks, connection documents, etc.)?
I thought about upgrading the main server while having the connection documents disabled and replication disabled and then upgrade the hub servers (again, while connections are severed). Once all the servers have been upgraded, then I would enable the connection documents and enable replication. Is that necessary? Is there anything I am missing?
Thanks for asking! Please see my previous SearchDomino tip on an R6 upgrade checklist.
