Upgrading a Lotus Connections Pilot install

For testing etc. internally I use a Lotus Connections 2.x Pilot install which is working fine for me. Now that 2.0.0 FP1 has been out for some time and 2.0.1 has been released I have wanting to update my install. If nothing else to make sure it worked with Firefox 3. As previously blogged it is quite easy to update Connections if you know how. Before starting I had my doubts if it was possible at all to upgrade a Pilot install but I had to try.

For starters I wanted to get my install up to 2.0.0 FP1 and it worked perfectly! Upgrading to 2.0.1 will be the topic for another morning but based on these results it shouldn’t be a problem. Please note that you have to be a 2.0.0 FP1 in order for you to go to 2.0.1.

Below is the command line I used to upgrade my LC Pilot from 2.0.0 to 2.0.0 FP1 (installed to D:IBM). I basically followed my own instructions posted here.
