Roll out advice


Recommended Posts

I am planning my roll out and conversion from ME3 for my main client and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or advice. I believe concurrent macro execution is too dangerous so I'll keep the player locked for the conversions. Considering run time only installations, preferences files, unattended installs and many other issues. IOW many of the things only covered in Joe's book about ME3. Any comments? Has anyone done it with MEP yet?

Hard to give advice on this because every system and installation are unique. I would setup a VMware session and take a snapshot prior to doing anything so you can rollback what you just rolled out. Then convert all the macros. Locking the player is, I think, the default action taken by the conversion. Test each macro, or group of macros. Make sure the MXPro system is working identically to the MX3 system prior to making any other moves. Once you are satisfied that it is all working, test it again ... because you missed something. I can guarantee it. And have a user test it also. Have as many users test in a controlled VMware session as is possible.

 

Now you can move on to your next set of challenges ... run time only installations, preferences files, unattended installs and many other issues
