When we moved from R6 to R7 and not from R7 to R8 we updated at first the server like mentioned from IBM. BUT such a upgrade will also remove the Help DBs. But many user need them, because there client level ist R7.
What I wish is a option in the Setup which can be set, so that the "old" Help DBs will not be removed during the update.

just yesterday I manually deleted my 6.5 help files. I left R7 in place.

In fact I have never been aware of the installer removing old help files

Starting with 7.x, Domino installs uninstall previous releases. So, we need the same option for templates.

It's normal to update servers before clients; so, clients are frequently using older versions of templates -- such as mail7.ntf or mail6.ntf.

I know the client leaves the old files in-place. I haven't noticed it on the server upgrade before. Interesting...

The server removes the helpfiles - but leaves their fulltext directories in place. Just ugly.
