Best Practices for patch/rollback on Windows?
I have been working on BO XI with UNIX for some time now and while I am pretty comfortable with managing it on UNIX, I am not too sure about the "best practices" when it comes to Windows.
I have a few specific questions:
1) What is the best way to apply a patch or Service Pack to BO XI R2 on a Windows envt without risking a system corruption?
- It is relatively easier on UNIX because you don't have to worry about registry entries and you can even perform multiple installations on the same box as long as you use different locations and ports.
2) What should be the ideal "rollback" strategy in case an upgrade/patch install fails and corrupts the system?
I am sure I will have some follow up questions, but if someone can get the discussion rolling with these for now, I would really appreciate!
Is there any documentation available around these topics on the boards some place?
