Upgrades, Upgrades, Upgrades

This week is upgrade week at work. In advance of a major eLearning initiative, we’re upgrading our LMS servers to new hardware. That’s new hardware for the database and the application servers. Add to that, upgrades of the LMS software and the DB2 version, I’m looking forward to a fun weekend. Happy Valentine’s Day!!

On top of that, we’re having to push forward our LVC upgrade to this weekend as well. Seems that the version we currently have (1.1.1) doesn’t like users with apostrophes in their names. So all you O’Reillys, O’Briens, and D’Stephanos out there - no LVC for you. Fortunately, 1.1.2 fixes that, along with letting me get the last servers up to 6.x code. Oh yeah, there’s still the Sametime (hey, if it’s good enough for Ambuj, it’s good enough for me!) server, but not this weekend.

I’m still waiting for a couple of clarifications from support on DB2 fixpak levels among other things - I’m hoping 7a is OK, since that means I can play with Beta 3 at work - hehehe.

Other than that, I’m just nailing down the timeline to get everything done, and waiting for the weekend to arrive. Oh yeah, and finish my drafts for the Admin2005 conference.
