Can we upgrade Veritas storage foundation from 3.3 to 6.1 version? I am trying to do it on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise. Is there any prerequisite for this upgrade, that we have to follow?.
Thanks in Advance.
sure you can, technically.
please to go https://sort.veritas.com/home
and click on "Installation and Upgrade Checklist" for upgrad related info.
If you are on a 3.x version, you would nopt be able to upgrade to 6.1 directly by running installer.
However, you can always to a package remove then to a "fresh install". Remember do not in anyway change the data on the external storage (dgs/vols with end user/app data).
If you are really on a 3.x version which is very very old, the OS that the 3.x is running on is most likely no longer a supported version, not only by Veritas, also by Microsoft. So an OS upgrade is also required.
Any question? Please do not hesitate to ask.
