It sounds as though the servers were not properly
upgraded. Did you study the release notes before
you did these upgrades? You could not, for
example, upgrade by simply unzipping the v.2.0
zip kit and overwriting the old files in the Fb
1.0.3 installation....if you're looking for a
solution, you will need to provide more information about these problem setups.
