How upgrade ePO 5.0 to 5.1 ?

Hi guys,

We have just done some upgrade from scratch to ePO 5.0 to our customers (Transfer System). Certainly now their want to upgrade to ePO 5.1. Seems that all can be done fine with the "Upgrade Compatibility Utility" but in the ePO 5.1 Known Issue (KB79062) report that there is a mistake on the Install Guide and is not supported the UCU to upgrade an 5.0 or 5.0.1 to 5.1

Anyone know the correct workaround or all will be done by create a new ePO5.1?

Thanks a lot

The Upgrade Compatibility Utility is mainly used for platform upgrade, 32bits to 64bits and and not just for all upgrade.. It's also useful for identifying all components compatible with 5.1 (anything you may have to remove or upgrade prior to performing your upgrade)
