I am running GW7 (all modules) on a single NW65SP7 and plan to upgrade to GW802HP2 on the same NW server. I would like to have as much done in advance as possible to minimize downtime. Can I extend the GW8 schema 2 days before the upgrade. I will run dsrepair to make sure DS is in good condition before I extend GW8 schema. Any concerns from others? I guess this would mean I will be running C1 with GW8 snap-in when my system is still GW7.

Thanks in advance.
