Best order and pitfalls of Domino upgrade

Our organization is upgrading our Domino server and client versions from 5.07 to 5.12. The Domino infrastructure consists of some 30 servers (hub-spoke; some clustered).

Is there a recommended path (i.e., upgrade admin clients then registration server then...)? Are there any pitfalls I should be aware of? Thanks.
There are various schools of thought on this. My advice is to proceed in the safest manner possible. Do the upgrade first on some workstations that don't matter too much, then some servers that don't matter too much. This will allow you to work out any problems that come up. Then you can do the remaining servers (a couple at a time), then the remaining workstations. Test each phase carefully, and allow time for things to go wrong.
