Today SmartUpgrade can only be used for Notes clients, but servers can not be upgraded nor patched from a central console
To manage large Domino environments it would be useful to have a Domino application on a central server, from which the Admin can control:
- which server in the environment will receive which SW upgrade or FixPack
- when to apply the upgrade/patch/fixpack
This way it would be possible to automate and simplify server upgrades even in a complex environment.
Note : this idea was proposed in a different place some years back. Now I'd like to see if Admin's are interested in a tool like that, and (if yes) request IBM / Lotus to build it.

Linux and UNIX installs can handle that brilliantly. You can even utilize a cron job to set times for upgrades, if that is a concern. It might be a bit more elegant to have a centralized place, but most if not all can be accomplished within the operating environment.

If one is still using Windows, here's another reason to consider making the you'll run out of drive letters on a larger environment, and waste time mapping, unmapping shares...which then sure, might make the Admin client solution a higher priority.
