Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
U00011898 Switch server mode to DWP not allowed during Zero Downtime Upgrade.

The following two hints were missing in the overview section of the Zero Downtime Upgrade (ZDU) documentation: 
  • While you are in compatibility mode, you are not allowed to switch a Worker Process (WP) to a Dialog Process (DWP). 
  • When an Automation Engine process running the old version stops, it cannot be restarted. When all Automation Engine processes running the old version have stopped (e.g. because of a power failure), the ZDU finalizes the upgrade process. No rollback is possible in this case.
