Installing the 6.0.1 fixpack ...

These are my rough n' ready notes, based on one installation thus far: -

Installation of WebSphere Portal 6.0.1 fixpack

but it worked for me.

In essence, I had to upgrade WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment to, upgrade WebSphere Process Server to 6.0.1 ( I always choose to use WPS underneath Portal, ready to get started with the My Tasks portlets etc. ) and then upgrade WebSphere Portal itself.

On a Thinkpad T60p with 3GB, I guess the entire process took about 2 hours, including the downloads ( via a nice fast network connection ).

As always, caveat emptor.

It's been a looooooooooooooong time ...... Domino and Sametime on AIX

Apologies for lack of posts in the past month or so, but it's been hectic times.

However, have just completed some testing to help a BP deploy Domino 7.0.2 and Sametime 7.5 on AIX. There are a few curveballs, probably down to my penchance for not RTFM'ing but diving straight in.

However, it works and I can connect to it from (ahem) Notes 8 beta2, and all is well.

Let me know if anyone wants my notes, with the usual caveats :)
