Tediously, and by hand. But, until recently, that was the way we did
releases also. We are just rolling out Smart Upgrade to get users
upgraded. I am thinking of downloading that client FP and roll that out
to all the users running 8.5.1 with Smart Upgrade.

I'm having issues with Smart Upgrade. Most of them have been ironed out.
Current hurdle is why it stopped upgrading the Smart Upgrade Tracking
Database with who completed the upgrade. Cool that I use the
Notes/Admin/Developer pack and it just installs the right part(s) based on
what the person was currently running. I hear that if I go to a multi
user setup I cannot do that.

A developer here wrote some code to create a .txt file of users who have
upgraded to 8.5.1 but are on old templates. I will use a program document
to do a LOAD CONVERT against that file to get their templates upgraded.
Before they can go to 8.5.1 they must complete training. We purchased a
web domino based training package which tracks their progress.
All in pilot with the systems department first.
Only 1 disaster. On both of her PC's she tried it and it went super funky
and she had to uninstall and reinstall. Help desk goddess voted most
likely to have strange registry settings and all. Oh well, gives the help
desk experience with the difficult ones. :-)
