Errata for 6.3 upgrade

While upgrading from 6.3 to 6.4 you will see a list of config files that are copied as .bak files. If you have modified any of these files to customize OpenManage and would like to keep the changes, please merge changes from a .bak file with the newly installed file. You can delete .bak config files that you did not customize.
