Thus far i have completed the following:
1 - successful backups of the platform to a single MCS.sti file on a nightly basis
2 - upgraded to OS release 2000-4-4a sr8
My next step (i assume) is to remove BARS version 3.5.6 from the Publisher, and install BARS v4.0.12.
After this, i need to run the Upgrade Assistant on the Pub and all Subs to make sure they will be ok with the upgrade.
Then, I go ahead and install the upgrade software "ciscocm-ffu.3-3-5.exe" and (if this installs with no issues) i then install the Service Release for this platform train - currently sr2c i think?
Have i missed any steps here? Anything to consider that might trip up the upgrade?
We run on DL380 G2 servers with plenty of disk space. Current version is 3.3(3) sr4a and we have no issues [other than vulnerability threats and a need to use the newer device packs which both require v3.3(5)]
Any thoughts appreciated :o)
