And the FP1 fixed your CPU issue, right?

Our 2 servers in the cluster are each on a separate iSeries box.  Our two
servers are mainly there for mail, web access to mail, calendaring, mail in
database oriented processes, one quality control app,, and are designed to
be redundant to each other.  We consider one the 'main' box and keep the
users off the secondary server unless we are switched to it for a test
(which we do once a month).  So far, the headaches from clustering have
been surprisingly minimal.

One of the strangest things i've seen is having a single end user whose
client seems to prefer the 'backup' server even though it's restricted.  He
shows up as a Notes user there, but all his databases are correctly
accessed on the main server.  Have checked all his
config/connection/location documents and his .ini file with no luck.  When
I was in his client, I couldn't find a link to his workspace... wasn't sure
how to get to it without a link...

We will do the LEI upgrade as well.  Just getting started with reading the
actual manual PDF for 6.5.4, haven't gotten to any cluster concerns yet...
but will be reading that section carefully!

Thanks for all suggestions...

The incremental installers use the good old green-screen installation, but
it would mean that you would have to download install three different
packages, and you would have to do that for each cluster server.  The
whole file install would be quicker in this case, as it would go from
6.5.1 to 6.5.4 in one step. It is also easy to do both servers, if your
cluster servers are on the same physical machine and LAPR.  I do think
that the readme suggests upgrading both cluster servers at the same time
or else deleting the clubusy.nsf file, you should check that out. Don't
forget to check out product dependencies like Sametime, LEI and the C or
C++ API.  Go with 6.5.4 FP1 like everyone suggests. I did not have the
problems others had with 6.5.4, but my server task was consuming the CPU

Hello All,

      We are starting to plan the best way to get to Domino for iSeries
6.5.4 from Domino for iSeries 6.5.1.  We would be doing the upgrade on 2
servers that are the only members of a cluster designed for redundancy.
Our client software is currently 6.5.2.  I'm picking through IBM/Lotus'
pages right now for info related to upgrading, but haven't gotten very far
yet.  In the meantime i'll ask the group for any tips or comments you
be able to offer.  This list is way too quiet most of the time... not
nearly as much controversy as the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion
list. ;)

Thanks for info you can provide...
