If you are running Systems Director and upgrading to the new version ... WATCH OUT!!
The smart guys would (before the upgrade) also stopped Systems Director (smstop) and saved the database (smsave) before attempting the upgrade - so the older version could be installed and the database recovered. And, of course, a complete backup of the LPAR - sorry "Virtual Server" in Director-speak - should be business as usual.I guess I am not that smart. Oh well, its my "crash and burn" Systems Director so I have lost little that can't be fixed up but I will have to manually disconnect the endpoints so they can reconnect to the new Director. Good news: I can now try the 6.2.0 install and update to 6.2.1 in one process from scratch from the new Systems Director 6.2.1 DVD - download early as it comes in at 4.2 GB.
More later ....
