After Installing R8 for Notification Server

Just a heads up... After installing R8 for Notification Server all seemed to go well, but after one day the console threw an error every time we opened it stating it couldn't connect to the database, and when you ran nssetup it failed.

Turns out the coresettings.config file gets corrupted after install (sometimes...most times) so you need to run a repair on the NS and the service pack.

If you have a good copy of your coresettings.config you can also just replace the corrupted one but I recommend pausing the NS or at least stopping the services before you do this.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm just putting together the plan for our upgrade and this is great to know.

I have upgraded 2 servers with no issues at all. I guess it is a case of YMMV

Zero problems with my upgrade, it took less than 15 minutes and so far so good! No red in the logs :)

I have updated 12 NS boxes from R7 to R8 and not had any issues.
