Not really. Before you upgrade rebuilt the post offices and domains or
do at least a validate of the databases.

...Moving from 5.5.00 to 5.5.04
We are making the move from 5.5.00 to 5.5.04 build # 1888 (A little late
but making it none the less). We have been running 5.5.00 from inception
and have been plagued by the missing primary key row problem as well as
some passthrough problems. We have made some PASSTHROUGH changes to the

of the consolidated sights and redoing same after upgrading to 1888.
Is there anything special I should do with respect to the consolidated

I have build 1982 of 5.5.04 installed and tried to install 5.5.05 over this
since there were a lot of bug-fixes.
After installation had finished I notised that the installation had not
replaced any files. I suspect the reason is that build 1982 of 5.5.04 has
newer date (sep. 7. 99) than 5.5.05 (july 22. 99).
What is the best version for me to use?
If 5.5.05. is the best version, how should i upgrade?
Thanks in advance,
Yes this is true - we look at file dates
Please backup your software, then install 5.5.04 off your CD, then install

I'm wondering if I can upgrade my whole backend (MTA & POA's) and then
gradually (pick and choose) which clients I want to switch over to the

Novell Support Forums Volenteer Sys...Upgrade to 5.4.5 or 5.5
Currently we are running eBiz version 220.127.116.11 under
Winodw2000. We are having cluster died issue since the
beginning. Now we are planning to move to 5.4.6 or 5.5.
Would someone help me to share if there are any serious
issues with new versions (for windows)? Should we go with

I've just installed the 5.5.04 maint release. On opening my database
(created in 5.5), its properties state that the version is 5.5.03.
As many have no doubt upgraded to 5.5.04, could someone pls advise if
this is 'correct' behaviour?
Many thanks in advance

I hope this has not been asked to death? But I will be upgrading our test
system from 5.5.02 build 1495 to either 5.5.03 or 5.5.04. First is there
anything in 03 that is not included in 04?
Second, are there any known problems with 04? I'll listen to facts, rumors,
5.5.04 seems pretty stable.

I'm getting database error "-157 Cannot convert SQLDATETIME to a date"
after updating my SQL Anywhere from 5.5.00 to 5.5.04. The error only
ocurred after updating to 5.5.04 and goes away if I go back to 5.5.00.
The error is the result of an embedded SQL statement in which the timestamp

George Hale <firstname.lastname@example.org...Run 5.5.00 + 5.5.04 on same server?
Is it possible to run two separate engines of different versions on the same
server? I have a customer that has a third party application running 5.5.00
on Novell Netware. My application has been tested under 5.5.04. The
customer would like each app to run under their recommended configurations,
so he's looking at running 2 instances of the database engine NLM, one for
the third party app and the second for our app. Is this possible, and if
so, are there any issues with the engine being of different versions (they

We are running 5.5.04, build 1867 on NT server, and having a problem
with high processor utilization. Vendor supplied us with new version of
their program, written in Delphi, that was loaded last weekend. Since
then, processor utilization has jumped from single digits to 70-80%, and
application is s-l-o-w.

upgrade 5.05.04, or do I need to upgrade the base version first. (And
if so, how?)

The Domain is the first piece I need to upgrade right?
