A while ago I posted my steps to upgrade DB2 from fix pack 4
to fix pack level 5. As this is an requirement for installing the
Lotus Connections 2.0.1 update.
Finally found some time to upgrade the Lotus Connections setup
at our company. I needed some more planning because our Connections
environment is used more and more by my colleagues at e-office.
What of course is a good cause, away from the Notes databases
up to Lotus Connections :-).
In my post for upgrading DB2 to fix pack level 5, I assumed that in case
of an upgrade you had to use the full install package of LC 2.0.1 ( C1L0ZML ).
But after reading the post from Luis Benitez about upgrading to LC 2.0.1
I found out that you will have to use other software packages in case
of an upgrade.
– Fix LC 2.0.1 + LotusConnectionsUpdateInstaller 2.0.1 + latest iFixes for 2.0.1
Check the PDF doc. for how I got my hands on this software.
Here is the PDF with the steps I took to upgrade our Connections setup
from LC 2.0 fixpack 1 to LC 2.0.1 + all required iFixes for LC 2.0.1.
One important note for the upgraders is that the upgrade will
overwrite a number of your files in the LotusConnections-Config directory.
Below are the files that changed in my upgrade situation, they
will need some re-configuring after the upgrade.
// Overwrites the e-mail addresses configured on whose be halve
// notification mails are sent
// Thing configured like additional profile fields, Sametime awareness,
// first name search are overwritten. Also things like edited labels in
// the property files are overwritten during the update process.
// This files seems to be left intact, all of my entered URLS where kept.
