FYI Upgrading Lotus Quickr Services for WebSphere Portal to 8.0.0.2

As you're no doubt aware, 8.0.0.2 is now available for the WebSphere Portal-based deployment of Lotus Quickr, as per: -

8.0.0.2: Lotus Quickr fix pack 8.0.0.2

The Readme refers to the Lotus Quickr Update Installer for version 8.0 but doesn't make it 100% clear where the installer can be obtained. It then states: -

Download the latest cumulative fix file and the WebSphere Portal Update Installer Version 6 from here.

This, potentially, is a herring rouge, as the version of the Update Installer here ( 2007-09-07 ) is for WebSphere Portal v6, rather than for Lotus Quickr.

Therefore, please get the correct installer from Fix Central.

Choose Product Family = Lotus, Product = Lotus Quickr and select Continue. Leave the default settings for All fixes and click Continue. After a few seconds, you'll see see a huge list of fixes - the Update Installers are here: -

Fix Name: 8.0.0.0-Quickr-Multi-IFLO04618-LIN

Platforms: Linux
Versions: 8.0.0.0
Abstract: Portal Update Installer (PUI) for Quickr, Linux version. Build: 20070905_1746. Date: September 5, 2007

and: -

Platforms: Windows

Abstract: Portal Update Installer (PUI) for Quickr, Windows version. Build: 20070905_1746. Date: September 5, 2007.

as is the fixpack: -

and it's prerequisite fixes.

Thanks to Jon for pointing out the discrepancy. Thanks also to Stuart for pointing out that the 8.0.0.2 fixes are now available.

Performed the upgrade without any major dramas. Apart from the aforementioned Quickr 8.0.0.2 fix, there is a bunch of pre/post-req WAS and Portal/Quickr fixes that I also applied.

No obvious changes apart from Manage Places, which has been reordered somewhat.
