    Short and simple...

    Scheduling this upgrade for next week and curious to how long this upgrade has taken for others to complete.

    Answer is not so short. Depends on a lot of things and how you define "upgrade"

    But if you are wondering how long it took to apply the UIM 20.30 upgrade to a 20.10 test system, it was 90 minutes from when nas went down to when nas was processing alarms again.

    There's lots more that's still broken and awaiting fixes and if you include the UMP->OperatorConsole changes in your definition of "upgrade" there's lots of time there to be worried about - days to weeks if you relied on LifeRay or any of the Flash based portlets in 20.10

    My experience so far isn't great either.  I agree with Garin.

    Is the issue with the upgrade itself completing or with the app having bugs\issues after-the-fact?

    In my instance the 20.10->20.30 upgrade went with only the expected failure of it not waiting long enough for wasp to complete it's startup.

    In general the UIM upgrade phase failure rate is low - it is after all generally just unpacking packages into the archive and then deploying them. Most of the individual probes run whatever upgrades they require themselves on startup.

    And since you are on 20.10, you are past the issues with data_engine and several of the other probes that came with the licensing and encryption changes.

    Expect issues with CABI and the UI portions of the upgrade.

    What Gavin is saying very politely is that the application of the software mostly works and takes a few hours at the most.  Then you have the update of the robots/hubs (which is optional).

    The real upgrade issue is the change (read lose) of functionality in the user interface.  If you have done customization that used Liferay functionality read lots of pain, but even if you did no customization you need to apply the sp1 patches (20.3.1) to get basic functionality back.

    If you can continue with flash functionality, don't do the upgrade in production, until you are able to determine the impact of the functionality changes on your environment.
