How long is everyone taking to install 17.0? I'm talking about from the
day
you download it from CA to the day you are 100% running in production.
The
site I support is upgrading from 16.0 SP7 to 17.0 SP1.

Re: 17.0 Upgrade
"This is the hi-level plan I gave my management.

They wanted me to go faster, but based on my 16.0 implementation
experience here, I demurred. VM is a special issue here. And we like to
let our internal customers have plenty of time to see the transparency
of the upgrade.

Yeah, there's some fluff, in there, but I don't need to explain to y'all
the rationale between Man_days and Calendar_Days, do I? . . . 8^D . . .
for some reason, it seemed to me that my management had no concept of
this, er, uh, concept . . . I'm almost ready for step6, but I'm going on
vacation next week. . . 8^) . . .We might very well install both
production CVs closer together too, but I'll cross that bridge when I
get to it.
