Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ll need to validate with Vision Solutions if Lite 5.0 will run. I’m fairly certain it will but it doesn’t hurt to ask.

Mimix and iTera HA will allow you to upgrade your systems and have your HA system at a higher release level than your host. Since it’s not replicating the operating system just your data there’s little to worry about.
It is recommended that you contact their support team before you begin the upgrade. They’ll provide you a list of PTF’s our software updates they’d expect you to have installed before you start the process.

Good luck!

Hi ,
You can have different version of OS between prod and backup having MIMIX on them but cannot have different version of mimix running on these systems. We also upgraded OS from v5R3 to V5R4 one at a time. But first you should upgrade MIMIX box(Backup) and then productions as sometime you might needs to do savrrestore type of sync and that may create some problems.

    I just recently did the same thing but because of time, I actually upgraded MIMX from V4R4 to V5.0 and then upgraded the production source side to V5R4 first. This caused some issues when the Infinium upgrade went in the next weekend because the V5R4 compiled programs would not restore on the V5R3 target. It was a timing issue that we knew would happen and once I got the target up to V5R4 then the programs went over fine. This happened 2 years ago when we went from V5R2 to V5R3 as well due to Infinium not letting it;s customers know in advance that the yearend payroll upgrade would require the next OS upgrade in order to install it until late. Also, please make sure you have the recommended PTFs loaded and applied for V5R4 from the MIMIX website or you could have issues with some processes not working. The PTFs to be concerned about are type 1000 PTFs that are not included in an Cumulative package. I know that with the latest PTF package we just applied there are about 3 or 4 additional PTFs.
