Re: Upgrade session interrupted - nohup catupgrd.sql?

I don't think nohup should have any negative impact, as it simply causes
your process to be running as a child of init instead.

Although I do recall some OSs actually killing your process if the shell
terminated.

So if you're doing this because you have unstable network connects or a slow
remote line to the server, I would recommend using screen instaed -- it's
much more reliable and comfortable to use  than nohup.
