Subject Re: ACS 4.4 XenServer 6.2 how to upgrade to ACS 4.4.1
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2014 13:58:23 GMT
Thanks Sam,
I had similar issue, I have no problem deploying Windows 2008 servers, only
Server 2012 had trouble. ACS 4.4.1 is not officially release yet, so I was
hopping you had the steps to upgrade from ACS 4.4. I would really like to
upgrade as soon as possible because I am pressure into use this current
cluster to install essential machines for my company.

Thanks for you support on this matter,
-Motty
