Cluster upgrade to V8.4

When performing a VMS upgrade (in this case from 8.3-1H1 to 8.4), does it matter which node your run the upgrade on??

In my case, I have a bl860c cluster, and without going into details, I would like to upgrade from SYS1.

Note:: All blades are identical and use the same common system disk.

I dont remember ever reading anything that would restrict me to using SYS0, but I thought I would run it by you all anyway.

thanks,

Dave.

Dave,

There is no requirement to even have a system root [SYS0] on a boot disk.

Thanks for the nudge Bill.

When you mention that point, it reminded me that I already knew that. Therefore the root doesn't matter.

Dave.
