Be *very* aware of the vagaries of email clients, the line above from
John appaers to contain the phrase "always = client", when his original
post contained "always > = client".

This is because somewhere in the chain something wrapped the
line at "> =" and
so the "> " was seen as being a quote lead-in rather than
the ">=" which was intended.

(I wonder how badly mangled this will appear.)

To re-iterate, the simple rule is: "The server (director and storage)
version must be always be greater than or equal to the client version."
