Hello,

Any suggestions for upgrade 3.1 to 4.0. I have msdp. I have also Master 8.1 on Windows Server 2016.

Thanks

Hi @vaultlearner 

First upgrade your master to 9.0 or above, then download the AURA tool (upgrade readiness analyser) to verify the appliance is ready for upgrade. It will let you know what needs to be fixed before you can upgrade. 

Other than that upgrade to appliance to 4.0 (you have to use the AURA tool and get a pass before you will be able to upgrade the appliance). If the tool lets you upgrade then you should have a good experience performing the upgrade itself (I can't recall any issues upgrading since the AURA tool was enforced). 

Don't forget to also upgrade your OpsCenter server if you have one before the master.

Hi Davidmoline,

Thanks for the reply. Which version should I run for 3.1 appliance to upgrade 4.0. I found one article below but I didn't figureout which one is suitable for this upgrade.

Hi @vaultlearner 

You are looking the wrong way around - you need  the AURA tool for the version you are upgrading to. Use this link instead https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/downloads/update.UPD773233 and grab both versions as after you have upgraded to 4.0 you will want to apply MR2 to 4.0 (to address security links). You will use the SYMC... one to do the initial upgrade. Then the NBAPP... one to get to 4.0 MR2. 
MR2 can be found here https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/downloads/update.UPD703670
