Can I Upgrade Directly to v7.7.3 ?


Can we upgrade directly from NetBackup v7.6.1.2 / to v7.7.3 / 2.7.3, or do we first have to go through the minor versions ?

So, what I mean is, can we do this:

v7.6.1.2 / -> v7.7.3 / 2.7.3

or do we have to do this:

v7.6.1.2 / -> v7.7.0 / 2.7.0 -> v7.7.1 / 2.7.1 -> v7.7.2 / 2.7.2 -> v7.7.3 / 2.7.3.

Please don't ask me to read the manual.  I've checked the Release Notes, Installation Guide and other documents and they don't seem to directly answer this question.

You can go directly To 8.0 from 7.x

Versions with 2 dots or fewer such as 7.7.3 can be installed directly. Triple-dot versions, which we haven't done since, usually needed to have the feature release (e.g., 7.6.1) applied first, although there were exceptions even then.
