Hi,

Take full backup of your system by using fbackup or any other tools you are using for backup.

Take root volume group backup by ignite tool.

I think you need not to backup any files.You should not swremove the existing version. If so all your customizations will be intact.

Hi,

I upgraded Ignite-UX about 10months back, I chose a different approach by removing the older version and installing the newer one due to conflicts in existing different Ignite-UX software versions.

I took a look on Ignite-UX faq too which is now @ http://docs.hp.com/en/5992-5094/5992-5094.pdf

check section 9-3.

I my experience, there may be 2 important files that could get lost (not with a normal upgrade/install) if swremove is done before swinstall.

/var/opt/ignite/INDEX
Files in /etc/opt/ignite

Consider some simple .bak copies here
