How long did your 13 upgrade take?

I did not want to hijack another thread so I started this one, but I was wondering if anyone upgraded their server already? (not a standalone desktop)

Too many times during upgrades I often wonder what others experiences were. Specifically when it comes to errors and how long tasks take. It's almost the beginning of the year and as companies start to plan their work I am sure more questions will come up. This is something that we can help each other out on our configuration makeup and get an idea on what we are in store for. I understand every place is different but we have all had upgrades where we had to unexpectedly run the Rate Matrix job that took 14 hours and threw off a schedule. I think someone being able to see what another company with BO, Websphere, and Oracle (for example) went through would go a long way when management asks for a high level time line to upgrade.

What version were you on?
What reporting platform?
Windows or Unix?
On Apache or Websphere?
Oracle or SQL?
Did you have to upgrade any of the infrastructure like Websphere or Oracle?
How long did the actual Clarity upgrade install/script take?
Errors? If so, what were they and how did you fix?

Feel free to add to it if you want, lets get some knowledge sharing going on!
