Questions and Answers:
1) Is this update mandatory?
The current update we are deploying is 10.9.1 -2 and is optional but highly recommended.
We are currently booking validation updates as per our SLA documentation : “Upgrades in the Validation instances will be scheduled automatically by SOLABS without requiring approval from the client” – however, since this corrective release is optional, you can reply to the update booking and ask us not to update your VAL instance if you so choose.
You could also choose to update your VAL instance, and then run some tests before deciding to update your PRODUCTION instance.
2) What if I don't want to perform this update?
The corrective release items are automatically included in the next mandatory release. Therefore, keeping your environments up-to-date reduces the changes to absorb upon your next update.
3) What is included in this corrective release?
4) “I have received an outlook meeting request but am not available at that moment” do we need to reschedule?
Even though we are using outlook meetings to schedule your updates, we do not require anyone from your organization to be present at the time of execution. Those meetings are meant as placeholders to help you track when our team will proceed to update your environments.
