I'm having a hard time keeping management onboard with Poly since there appears to be no movement on upgrades, etc.
And the infrastructure team is pushing vSphere quite successfully over Poly.
Solved! Go to Solution.

HP and IBRIX today announced a definitive agreement for HP to acquire IBRIX, a leading provider of enterprise-class file serving software that includes data protection, high-availability features and data management services for extreme scale-out, cloud and high-performance computing deployments.
Looks like HP will integrate their new jewel into the space Polyserve used to headline... IMHO

The Linux product recently had a update with a few replication feature as well as supporting newer versions of Linux
The windows product had a revision of 3.6.2 that supported SQL 2008.
Please contact your HP representatives and discuss what you need.

and SQL 2005/and 2008
Version 3.6.2 already supported SQL 2008
Manuals for 4.0 are finally out at http://www.hp.com/go/polyserve and select Support and Documents.

Download the 4.0 docs
select support on the right and it should get you to the 4.0 documentation.

My roadmap is to update to 3.6.2 so i can run SQL2008 and phase this thing out completely by mid 2013 when win2003 support ends, switching entirely to VMWare.

After you upgrade to 3.6.2 to upgrade to 4.0
1. Take the sysetm with the highest IP
2. backup the polyserve configuration
3. Install the new OS
4. install 4.0 on the new node
5. export configuration to new node
Therefore you have 4.0 on the new node and 3.6.2 on the other nodes.
Repeat for next highest IP address.

Any one have any 3.6.1 -> 3.6.2 stories to share? And the subsequent 2005 -> 2008 upgrade?
How about PolyServe 4.0 - doesn't look like it is an easy upgrade for a cluster :(

Looks like we have the final answer from HP. Version 4.1 for Windows just came out with the following in the release notes:
Please be aware though that this is the final
release of the product and there will not be any more feature enhancements in the
product going forward.
