IBM Lotus Enterprise Integrator: Best practices for upgrading

It would be safest to remove LEI from the ServerTasks in case you want to start Domino and not have LEI start until you are ready. You do not need to do an interim upgrade going from 6.5.x to 8.5.x. Uninstalling is over kill unless things got really messed up somehow. Just remember to have your own back up of the decsadm.nsf in case it is needed and realize that Notes administrators may have made changed to the Domino Directory since the original install was done.

IBM Lotus Enterprise Integrator: Best practices for upgrading

Should LEI be removed from the ServerTasks prior to upgrading Domino, so I does not attempt to start?

If Upgrading form 6.5.x. to 8.5.x, what is the recommended path, 7.0x first, then 8.5.x or straight to 8.5.x?

IBM Released a document (Customer experience retated) that recommend uninstalling everyting first then using the ID etc to completely rebuilt the server from scratch. Is this complete over-kill?
