  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customer found that after upgrading to Notes Traveler 8.5.3 UP1
    they were having issues upgrading to Traveler 8.5.3 UP1 IF1.
    The problem seems to be that an old copy of the Traveler
    registry file still exists on the system, making the upgrade
    installer fail the pre-req check.
    

Local fix

  • If multiple registry files, delete the old registry file which
    will not have an instance number associated with it. For
    example, if have these files:
    
    /var/.com.lotus.traveler.registry
    /var/.com.lotus.traveler.registry1
    
    Then delete the first file, the one without the number in the
    name.
    

Problem summary

  • In 8.5.3.3 Notes Traveler was updated to support multiple
    instances on Linux.  After upgrade using multiple instances
    there was a scenario that would leave an old registry entry on
    the server that could prevent subsequent upgrades.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Notes Traveler server was updated to detect and remove the
    old registry entry.
    

Temporary fix
