Anyone have any new news on the 3.0 dvd for the 470?
My primary drive is failing bad and I have a new one ready to go in but I'm thinking of trying to hold out for the new update. Not sure if it's the right thing to do though....
If I go straight from the cougar 2.5 to the 3.0 will all of my shares still be recognized after the recovery?? I should only have to recreate the users, correct?
Anything else I should be concerned about?

We dont currently have any further update on when 3.0 will be available, but as the restore will be a server recovery your data will be ok. It will be any program or setting held on C that will go (i.e. users and registry).

Delayed until February was the last word in mid December from HP. Should not be a problem as the conversion to 3.0 will involve a server recovery whichmeans it lays down a new OS along with HP's 3.0 software.

I guess we will be hearing soon if they plan for additional delays.

Though they did not specify, I assume they meant Feb '10.

Seriously, you WILL see something obvious on this site as soon as it happens! I have faith in Alex (et al).

John - Please accept my sincere apology, I meant no disrespect to anyone on this forum. I'm merely voicing my frustration with HP over the wait for this update. I have no doubts that, once released, the information will be posted here.

Apoligies on this end as well... I was trying to be a little humorous in responding, "seriously"... I'm afraid that a bit of frustration at seeing new threads on this so many times came through a bit too much!

Did they say whether it was to be Feb of 2011 or '12???

You mean we may be in the Twilite Zone here? Or is the Latin translation for FEB really FIB or pronounced as such. (sigh)

No I am not implying HP FIBBED just pulling a pun. Anytime a release is comming close everyone gets anxious, excited and yes last Dec disappointed. However if they release it before its really complete then the next set of emotions will be frustration, dissappoinment and the feeling of being short changed after having paid for it.

Needless to say it will be out when they release it and hopefully it will be released without issues and thats what I want it to be free of is issues. Lets not invite potential problems to our servers by being impatient. Lets be patient abit longer hell we waited this long a little be more time is not going to kill us.

I want the 3.0 too and I keep checking the News Area here because I know once Alex gets wind of its pending release and availability and is allowed to post it I know he will do so without delay. Hell he probably already has the spot written up just waiting to put the updated info in so I know it will be up faster then if he wrote it from scratch. Now I am just assuming he has it prewritten and I could be very wrong but I assure you it will be posted in the News Area the second he can write about it. You can bank on that. So each day I check that News Area and then the Review Area hoping to see if there is a 3.0 message there or not. Let everyone do the same and by the way even if its not there I bet there is some fine reading material written by Damian about something he is testing or working on. Always something there worth while reading....

Yes good news indeed!!

Prior to that good news I thought todays posts about the delayed 3.0 was about to errupt in revolt against HP and then comes along your post about us being able to order 3.0 this week and it will start shipping next week.

Yes good news and for me very good timing too as I will soon begin migrating the data from my EX470 to the Proliant after which I will install the 3.0 but by that time I will also have converted an EX470 Case to be a port multiplier much the same as what erail has done so for me everything ties in perfectly.

I've done the memory upgrade on my 475, but am concerned that the stock CPU will not run this release well. Any comments on how a stock CPU with 2GB memory will run this release? Should I throw a 1640 in (if I can find one)?

Jim

I've got some performance comments in my 3.0 upgrade guide. I'd suggest that if you want the upgrade, go ahead and get it. If you're a heavy user of the Video Converter or find the system to lag after the upgrade you can always replace the CPU if that is the cost effective means to do so.

Alex, do the orders come with a license key or anything? Or more importantly, if we have more than one MSS in our family, do we need to place a separate update order for each MSS we have, or will one set of DVDs be fine? Thanks!

My question is can I use running the recovery operation to 3.0 as a chance to install a larger HDD for the system drive?
