Hi All,

Re: Upgrade Question .

Shalom,

1) Support pack is the after install upgrades to the OS, apps and patches.

2) The upgrade-ux command is run on the core OS DVD.

Advice: DONT DO THE UPGRADE!!!!

update-ux is unreliable, unsupported by applications vendors and should be avoided.

Better to back every bit of data up and do a cold OS install, then the apps, then data conversion if needed.

If supported, consider going to 11.31 because it has a longer end of life date. 11.23 and 11.11 share the same end of life date.
