I have a question regarding an upgrade procedure from 3.3(3) to 3.3(5) then to 4.2(3). The upgrade will be done using a new MCS server.
I was wondering if I could do a BARS restore from the current 3.3(3) server to the new 3.3(3) server, upgrade the new server to 3.3(5) and remove the subscribers from the databse without them being online, and then do the 4.2(3) upgrade?
What I would like to do, is do the upgrade on a stand alone Publisher, and then rebuild the subscribers as a fresh 4.2(3) Subscriber and then add them back into the cluster.
I have read the upgrade procedures so plesae don't post a PDF of the upgrade guide.
