Software upgrade with intermediate reboot

(imported topic written by SystemAdmin)

I have a question regarding software upgrades that involve a reboot in between the uninstallation and reinstallation of the Software application.

I have a software upgrade that requires the software to be uninstalled then the system be rebooted before the installing the new version of the software.

We want to try avoiding creating seperate fixlets to perform the uninstall, the reboot and finally the re-install since there is a good chance some systems could be left without software if those fixlets are not executed accordingly.

So the question is can this be performed in one fixlet?

Hi JJ,

you can’t do it within a single fixlet, but you can put two fixlets together into a baseline and get the desired result.
