Finally! I spent all of 25 minutes yesterday to upgrade my main Domino server to 8.5.2 with the new HF for SMTP that came out yesterday. I waited on this fix and all I can say is that the upgrade (from 8.5.1 FP4) was quick, simple and even the old HW that my server runs on had no issue with it. What took the longest was the download of the Domino install (15 minutes) and everything else was quick.
I do have clients that want to wait until FP1 comes out – somewhat short-sighted but I do understand some hesitation. That is exactly why I did not upgrade my servers immediately when the new version came out – I like to wait and see what issues and downright problems are found by those braver than me. Once I see a lull – then I go ahead and make a decision.
So, if Mr cautious did it last night while watching TV and sipping a nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon and upgrading Symantec on another server, what are you waiting for?
