Hi Everyone,

Do you think it would be possible to do a ?live upgrade? from 6.2u2 to 6.2u3 ?

Basically stop all execd?s with softstop, shutdown all masters and shadows, overwrite the binaries, and start everything up again.

Or would I need to do bdb export/import to do a trick like this?

The reason is that I need the bug fixes from 6.2u3 (once it comes out) and I cant shut down the whole gridl and all running jobs to do it.
