Successful upgrade for me. Upgraded my ePO 3.6.1 (+ some hot fixes) to 4.0 this morning. Took a little longer than I wanted it to because of all of the upgrade bugs I ran into (and reported) from Beta 2 to RC are still there. Here is a small list of items you might run into during an upgrade:
- Upgrade doesn't honor where you installed it last time. (i.e. Installed to drive D before and upgrade defaults to drive C.)
- At the SQL Server Authentication page you will get an error trying to connect to a default instance of SQL2000 if you used the IP Address before. You need to go to:
\install location of current epo\3.6.1\db\server.ini
WOW! I love it. Very nice. I love the dashboard. This is going over very well so far. Now, lets see what breaks. I hope nothing. I upgraded from 3.6.1 and had not a single issue. It worked flawlessly. I am seeing my workstations reporting in and reports seem to function just fine so far. Will continue to monitor the status and update here.
If you are getting errors on the installation it may be because you are using a strong password when connecting throught ntlm to the database. I ran into this also. Mcafee confirmed this to be true in the last beta and says it wont be fixed until a service pack is released.
