RE: How to install ?

It is better to only set one deployment task. In this task we tell it to say remove VSE 8.0i and then install VSE 8.5i. It seems to be more problem free than if you chose the option to upgrade.

In our environment, we have decided not to roll out VSE 8.7i due to the issues with it disabling on some machines. In fact, I was unable to remove VSE 8.7i and go back to VSE 8.5i since VSE 8.5i became disabled on 5 of my test systems. It sucks that it has a problem downgrading if you decide that VSE 8.7i is a problem. I am going to wait until Patch 1 before we start evaluating this version again.

I would say to anyone who is thinking of rolling this out further than a test environment to wait until there is something more stable.

Security is only as good as your weakest point. If you roll 8.7i out, potentially, the whole network is your weak point

RE: How to install ?



i did not try the first option. In my test setup i tried installing 8.7 OVER 8.5 and almost all was wrong happy so then i tried uninstalling 8.7/8.5 in a deployment task and then installing 8.7 in another deployment task, and all was right.
But i'd like to now if uninstall8.5/install8.7 in the same task can be a good idea.
Are you deploying 8.7 to all your machines? are you mad? happy

To install this to all clients, I think it would be madness

RE: How to install ?

I think we are all agreed that in the current state 8.7 is not yet fit for install. I am also waiting for patch 1 or sufficient hotfixes and explanataions of the issues.

as for installs

deployment of remove vse 8.5 install vse 8.7 - yay
deployment of install 8.7 and hope it removes 8.5 - nay

would seem to be the way to go.

RE: How to install ?

All i know is that

8.5 was supposed to remove 8.0 every time, but it didn't , when you used remove then install you got 99% success though

when using 8.7 its supposed to remove but it hasnt every time in my tests, but when I set remove 8.5 then install it works.

I always read the manual and the readme and the KB but I only use what works.. and the upgrade function has never worked as successfuly as removal and install for me.

RE: How to install ?

I would normally perform 2 stages within the upgrade, as previously mentioned, do a Uninstall of previous, and install new within the same task..

But I will not be doing this with 8.7i until i know there is something more stable about..

RE: How to install ?

I'm going to remove VSE 8.7 from my test systems because some of them, randomly, does not boot up after the logon screen..

Have also removed VSE 8.7i from my test systems. Will wait for Patch 1 before testing again.
