What's the difference between Data Ontap 188.8.131.52 and 7.3.5P1? We did an upgrade from 7.3.5 to 7.3.5p1 a few weeks ago at one location and now two weeks later we installed 184.108.40.206 at the other location as it was the only version available on NOW. Are they the same? If not, should we have upgraded the first site to the 220.127.116.11? Thanks for your help.

You can compare two releases to determine differences using the release comparisons tool on the support website.
In this case it looks like two bugs were fixed in 18.104.22.168:
474501: Data ONTAP 7.3.5 not booting up on non-HA systems configured for SnapMirror over FC
476486: Booting 7.3.5 may fail with "Too many disks have been installed"
You can get more more details about the individual bugs using the bugs online tool.
It depends on your specific configuration if you are susceptable to these bugs or not so I'd check the bug details and then decide yourself if you need to update your system from 7.3.5P1 to 22.214.171.124.
