Remember to update any startup scripts you might have to launch your new installation given a server restart

3. Configure XP_HOME

The next step depends on your setup. Do you have your $XP_HOME folder outside or inside the $XP_INSTALL folder?

Make sure the new installation points to the correct $XP_HOME folder.

Copy your $OLD_XP_INSTALL/home folder to the the new $NEW_XP_INSTALL/ (on all nodes).

4. Stop the old installation

5. Start the new installation
