Improved Messaging Server Upgrade Documentation
By Joesciallo-Oracle on Jul 17, 2007
One of our Messaging Server writers released the following document while I was away last week: Upgrading from Messaging Server 5.2 to Sun Java System Messaging Server.
This article was previously published as Chapter 2 of the Sun Java Systems Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide, and it will eventually be part of the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Upgrade Guide. This article describes how to upgrade from Messaging Server 5.2 to the current version of Messaging Server. Direct upgrade from Messaging Server 5.2 to 6.3 is not certified, but you can upgrade to 6.2 using procedures described here, then upgrade to 6.3 using the procedures described in the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Upgrade Guide.
Note - Depending on the complexity of your deployment, upgrading from Messaging Server 5.2 to 6.3 may not be a trivial task. Sun Professional Services can also assist in upgrading Messaging Server.
