I just went from 10.3.4 on AIX 5.3, to 11.1.4 on Red Hat 6.2 Most of the pain was the operating system conversion and new hardware.
The actual Universe stuff was pretty painless. We've only been live for a few days, so I have not had time to play with any new stuff. We had to rebuild our globally cataloged stuff, but, we had the source code. We had to transfer over items from UV.ACCOUNTS file. We had to upgrade all the VOC's, but, they have command line utility that you can write a BASIC program to do that if you want. -The utility is called = /usr/uv/bin/updaccount -Someone on the list had a utility to run this in every account. -I think all you need to do is, loop through the UV.ACCOUNTS file and run this command on every account Oh yes, and then if you have a file called 'ORDER' (I mean, who would write a business application with a file called ORDER!!!- note the sarcasm), then you have to put those file pointers back, because the upgrade utility will wipe them out. Just look in &TEMP& of the account and you will find the VOC items replaced by the upgrade utility. Oh yeah and then we have to run format.conv on every file and object code to bit swap them from AIX to Linux, but, again, if you aren't changing OS's, you don't need to worry about that. Again, another BASIC program to write. Thats all I can remember, as I haven't slept much in the past week...
