I wish to try the following scenario, for my client migration to 5.1 from 4.2.
1. Create a new File Group containing the new installation client files for 5.1. 2. Select a few pilot laptops (in machine group) and uncheck the old Client file set and check the new client file set and synchronize. 3. The laptops will receive the new file sets and hence, their client will be upgraded. 4. Now i do this procedure on the whole group.
The pilot laptops belong to the machine group on which i shall do the same operation. Is there any disadvantage? since they are in the same group and the client file update will take place at group level, will the client on these pilot computers again be migrated / updated?
