I had been putzing around with my golf swing linux based Domino servers over the weekend. I did run into some issue with upgrading servers but because working my 3/4 pitch swing to the green looked so much more important to me (the weather was GORGEOUS!!) I put it off until later.
Fast forward to today and this is a new technote I just found in the IBM support stream:
To summarize quickly: If you have an existing 8.5.1 Domino server on Linux that has ANY FP installed – you will not be able to upgrade to 8.5.2 right away but will have to uninstall the FP to get back to a vintage 8.5.1 install. Once you are back to square eleven you will be able to run your upgrade just as you are used to it. Mind you, you DO NOT have to uninstall 8.5.1, you just have to get rid of your fixpack.
Once the weather goes bad and I don’t feel like working on that golf swing (or my scores on the course nosedive) I will go through the log files on my server I was working on and see if the error messages outlined in this technote match. I want to make sure it was not admin induced error or some other, unrelated issue.
