Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Upgrade Proceedure

Is there an uninstall script? And when you say tar up the dist directory
is that from one of the servers that is running the latest release

Tar up the "dist" directory and copy it to each of the new machines,
untar and run "dist/install.sh"?

Only problem is if you need to uninstall first - because there's no
uninstall script... Usually you don't need to uninstall, but sometimes
you do (because some residual file means that the wrong version of
library is used, or some such).
