Help for an upgrade path

I would like to upgrade to the latest version being 8.4.3 (at this moment). My current version is 8.3.4. This version is not mentioned in the recommended/tested upgrade path (see below). Do you expect any problems? To be honest, I do not even know if there is an intermediate version...

 

Thank you in advance for your response.

While version 8.3.0 certainly came out before 8.4.0, the timing gets a little fuzzy as you get farther along in versions and you can see the later versions in the branches being released around the same time, causing this break in upgrade path support. Simply attempting the upgrade won't cause any harm; however, it is important to note that the upgrade path is updated with each release so if the release notes do not mention the version that you are currently on, most likely that will not be supported and NIOS will not allow you to make that jump. When this happens, it will report "no upgrade path found" and abort the upload.

Hello Garcia69,

 

I don’t know which document are you referring to. But our online documentation available at http://dloads.infoblox.com/tech_lib/NIOS_8.4.3_ReleaseNotes.pdf?auth=1561389632, does have your current release included among the *tested/validated* releases.

 

Take a look :

All the best,

Thank you for your quick response. It's good to know it won't cause any harm. But "the problem" is solved by an updated version over the release notes. As stated below by malman, my version is now included in the tested and validated releases.

I see there is a new version of the Release notes. You are right, in this version my NIOS version is included in the tested and validated releases.

Thank you.
