I have been trying to understand the upgrade process for what I am running
now. I am currently clustering vm's on ocfs with oes2 sp3. I want to upgrade
to OES11 and continue using it the way it has been setup. Novell has
suggested this as the easiest solution to upgrade the the oes2 sp3 vm's I
currently have running. I understand that I have to install HAE during the
upgrade. My concern is what will happen after the upgrade with 2 different
version running in the cluster. Should all the vm's remain down while
upgrading all 3 hosts to OES11 during the upgrade? Will there be any gotchas
after the upgrade?

Thanks

I can update this that it can be done. The first server I did was not happy
though. There needs to be some docs for this. It is all good now. The 2nd
and 3rd host upgraded a lot cleaner. Also it did not enable the ocfs
services for boot on any server that was upgraded. Had to do it manually.
