We are studying the upgrade of ours servers (R4.67 to R 5.08).
The installation directories of the V5 are the same as the ones of the R4.
Do you think it is preferable to upgrade in the same repertories of the R4 (automatic upgrade), or is it preferable to upgrade in the new directories (LotusDomino and LotusDominoData, this solution is less automatic)?
I prefer to completely uninstall and then install R5. Make sure you save/backup your data files, notes.ini, and any customized templates you have. You can then install R5 in a clean environment. Remember to put your notes.ini in the new place for R5 (c:\winnt for Win NT servers).
