Can we upgrade directly from NetBackup v188.8.131.52 / 184.108.40.206 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:
v220.127.116.11 / 18.104.22.168 -> v7.7.3 / 2.7.3
or do we have to do this:
v22.214.171.124 / 126.96.36.199 -> 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.
Versions with 2 dots or fewer such as 7.7.3 can be installed directly. Triple-dot versions, which we haven't done since 188.8.131.52, usually needed to have the feature release (e.g., 7.6.1) applied first, although there were exceptions even then.
