All this talk about server upgrade woes has me concerned, especially since I am heading to 7.1.5 with my 6.3.5 servers. Being a university, we have quite a few boxes that can't/wont upgrade (Solaris 5.8 running 188.8.131.52 client, old linux/2.4 kernel running 5.5 client, Solaris boxes running Notes/Domino with 6.1.3 client/TDP - being twilighted, quite a few linux x32 boxes running 6.2 client). Thanks goodness the IRIX boxes running the 4.x client finally went away!
So how concerned should I be? On Tue, Apr 26, 2016 at 11:19 AM, Michael Prix <m...@rs6000.darktech.org> wrote: > Yes.
