Hi all,

we are in the process of upgrading Device Manager HDVM version 5.8 to version 6.0, while also taking care of Replication Monitor HRpM 5.0 to Replication Manager 6.0.

Thanks to the existing threads on the forum, I managed to clear the quesitons around export/backup of the existing configuration. (Backup_and_Export_HiCommand.zip from TUF).

Reading the user's guides, I know most of the things that will happened during the upgrades (like HRpM Alerts will not be inherited...)

Would you mind sharing your experience on any similar upgrades you completed?

I am tempted to scratch the upgrade and do a fresh install, as we are not using much of its potential yet (like LGroups etc...).

Many thanks for your updates.
