Hello Tim,

How are you doing?  We need to upgrade one of our Lab master from 7.1 to 7.2 asap.  Is there a set of detailed instructions on how to do this quickly?


Thank you!

How many replicas and clients in the domain?  If it is truly lab, downtime should not be such an issue.  So simple is:

1. Backup database with boks_bru

2. Uninstall BoKS 7.1 on master.

3. Install BoKS 7.2 on master.

4. Restore database from step 1 with boks_bru.

5. Uninstall 7.1 on replicas and reinstall with 7.2.

6. Ensure replication is working with boksdiag list.

7. If you have WSI installed, you will have to uninstall 7.1 and reinstall 7.2.  Save config with uninstall.


That should do it  7.1 clients will work with 7.2 and 7.2 clients work with 7.1 master/replica, so you can upgrade clients anytime.

Let me know if you need more.
