I have 3 questions about upgrading from 6.5 Sp6 to 6.5 Sp8.

Do I need to be at any specific Edir Patch level before upgrading?

When performing the upgrade and it asks me to create a backup of all files can the backup be directed to a volume other than SYS and what would the syntax look like?

Does SP8 Imanager communicate with Border Manager 3.9 straight away or is there another patch for that other than the post SP8 patches?

Just wondering,
