Chaining Smart Upgrade kits - Smart Upgrade can be used to upgrade a series of different versions at one time with the same Desktop Policy, HCL should bring this feature back.

- During IBM period, there was a feature in Notes client called - Smart Upgrade can be used to upgrade a series of different versions at one time with same desktop policy.

Example: Upgrade Lotus Notes Client 7.0.2 to version 8.5.2FP2. [https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/uid/swg21438849 / "chaining Smart Upgrade kits"]

For reference:- Old IBM presentation:


- But currently HCL doesn't support's this behaviour. Now the only possible way is to upgrade from base to base version (i.e) for eg., from v901 to v11.0.1 smartupgrade through chaining is possible, but as far as including fix pack. After upgrading first we have to ensure the setup v11.0.1 is OK, and then upgrade to FP1.

- HCL should plan to bring this feature back in Notes client.
