Chad - I never use the incremental installers. I may get bitten on it in 
the future, but I've done all upgrades from 6.0 to where I am now (601, 
602, 602CF1, 650, 651, 651CF1?, 652, 652, 653, 654, 654FP1) and I have 
never ran into any issues using the full installers everytime. I usually 
download and install it before my BP sends me the CD!

Plan sounds good - you're way too cautious for me. =) I generally just do 
an ENDDOMSVR on the clusters and upgrade them!! Then after they've been 
stable for a while I will do my primary.

Gregg - thanks again. You're the blackberry guy! I hope to think that I'm 
helping some people out... I actually submitted an abstract for LS 06 on 
"Domino for iSeries Administration" - the session I went to last year 
seemed to be more of a sales pitch by an IBM internal salesperson. It was 
good, but it was the only iSeries session I saw! I'm working on a 
presentation right now just in case. It will be helpful for the rest of my 
staff too, so it's something I need to do anyway.
