Upgrade Status

We finally got everything that we needed to do a backup on our Development Server, which is what was keeping us from getting the upgrade put on. We backed up our current server to a different Tivoli Storage Manager node, did the upgrade to 6.5.2 on the server, deleted the filespace on the node we normally use for backups and ran a complete backup of the upgraded server. Things are looking good so far. We will be testing moving our test server from the s/390 platform to a blade server on Monday. If all goes well with that test then we will probably shoot for moving and upgrading production on the 16th.

Note: I previously posted about two scenarios for our upgrade. We will be going with Scenario one.
