I've gone from 6.5.3 to 8.5.1 directly with no issues. The 6.0.x should

Here are some tips on the config:


The second section describes the *current *client that is being

If upgrading *from* a Notes 8.0.x Basic Client or a Notes 7.0.x
or earlier client, you must select “Notes Basic”. If
you're upgrading
*from* a Notes 8.0.x or later Standard Client, then select
“Notes Standard” here.

In the Source versions field, you can choose to only upgrade
from “Release 7.0.3” or use a wildcard, such as “Release
7.0.*” for example.
Using * will allow the upgrade from any version earlier
than the Destination
version (see below).

If the source version is 6.5.4 or earlier, choose “Yes” in the
corresponding field.


Then the next section is where you specify the “Destination
version” of the client.

This must correspond to the “Deploy version” listed in the

This is the area where the effective user policy is closely tied
to the Smart Upgrade kit database. It is possible that you

I have clients as old as 6.0.3. I want them running 8.5.1 standard when

about their source version, standard or basic, but not their destination

standard, or is that checked to see if the client qualifies for this
upgrade kit?
Can a basic notes client at 6.0.3 be upgraded to the 8.5.1 standard, and
just the client (not admin and developer) using the same kit as someone
using the full admin/developer? If not how do I download just the 8.5.1
standard client from passport advantage? I can't seem to find it.
