We are considering going from OnTap 9.3 directly to 9.7 in a single upgrade. We have a AFF300, FAS2650 and FAS2620 systems. Has anyone gone this route and how did it go. I have never done multiple versions is a single upgrade.
Its not for everyone IMHO. It is a double upgrade in the background. So you load the 9.5 code too.
whats you’re environment like? Lots of plug-ins? iSCSI or FC?
Don’t do it!
Do the double upgrade
It’s supported that way
there are changes that happen between the big jumps
if you do I suspect a panic or more will be involved
go to 9.5 then 9.7p1!
Very simple environment - CIFS shares for Windows and NFS shares for VMware.
