DL380 G2 Cluster Upgrade

Hi,

I'm just doing some research and preparation for upgrading my current DL380 G2 Win2k cluster to Win2k3. It's nothing fancy, connects into a MSA500, runs Multipath 2 and had all drivers and firmware update about 3 months ago. It's also runnning SQL 2k SP3a.
Has anyone had any issues with doing a rolling upgrade on a similar platform?

Thanks
Kristian

Cheers for that Doug.

I searched for that sort of Doco everywhere and couldn't find it. With regard to the SQL, I found an article on MS (KB313037), basically saying SQL will support rolling 2k to 2k3 upgrades as long as you have SP3. We're running SP3a. The only issue I may have is McAfee AV, which I will either disable or remove.

Cheers
Kristian

You need to upgrade your multipath software to support windows 2003.

I'm actually already running Multipath ver2.0, which is compatible with Win2k3.
