I did the upgrade a few weeks ago.

There were some curve balls in the installation, but once installed no

Here is what I ran into...

The default directory for fresh installations now is

There is no separate installation for UVODBC server anymore, it is
installed with UV RDBMS and creates new NT services and does not
remove the older services so you end up with redundancy or conflicts
when your services are started up.

So, what you really should do before installing Universe RDBMS, in my
humble opinion, is completely de-install UVODBC server. I would
de-install UV Admin as well. Then go ahead and install all the new

You also have to update the VOC file on each account. You will be
prompted to do this only when you log directly into an account that
hasn't been updated yet. If you do a LOGTO to move to an account whose
VOC hasn't been updated, you will not be prompted to update the VOC.
There is probably an executable you can run from a command prompt to
do this - updaccount maybe?

We made some attempts with it.  For the most part we found the Objects to
run about twice as fast as the old version.  But like every product we did
find some bugs.  Uv Admin now contains a file utility icon.  While it is a
great idea to now be able get statisics on data files as well as be able to
fix a file with going into a telnet session.  We found that the statisics
don't work nor was there any documentation that worked.  (Don't try to click
help there aren't any linked topics in the help.)  We report these and a
couple of other minor issues so hopefully they will be resolved soon.
