How To Upgrade To IM 10 From IM 9 In Round Robin Fashion Without Causing Complete Outage of Services (Doc ID 2153040.1)

Last updated on JUNE 24, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server - Version 9.0.1.4.0 to 10.0.0 [Release 9.0.1 to 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Oracle does not recommend running server pool using mixed versions of IM as there might be protocol changes between server to server communication.  Secondly, we do not certify a mixed environment that may lead to inconsistency of server states and functional behavior.  Since IM 10 cannot work with an older IM server version (i.e. IM 9) in pool set up, it is necessary to upgrade all the servers to the same version at once, however, this will result in a complete outage of the IM environment and services.
