I was not so lucky. I don't know if it was a configuration
error on my original setup or not but...

About 95% of the way though the install I got a .dll error and it
locked the system up. Upon rebooting it had only upgraded 5
of the 50+ domains we host. Also all the permissions on the
directories had been changed.

The configuration for running Perl scripts is different also so
be prepared to make some modifications there.

The only other thing we found and this is up for debate, was
that the newest version of the index server would not install on
a BDC. Mitch and Dale have had it running on BDCs but unless
I missed a message they were at the Beta 3 level.

I do have it operational now but the 1 hour install took a
little longer as I ended up have to rebuild the server as a member

The features are great but any precautions you can take would
be worthwhile in my opinion.

Mitch, Dale, have you had any luck finding a released version
running on a BDC?
