ESM Express 6.9 upgrade path from 4.0 availability

I see that ESM Express 6.9.0 is available for download now, as announced during the Protect conference.

Is there any word on when an upgrade path will be available (even if only roughly) for existing 4.0 customers?

The correct download is 6.91 and not 6.90.

It was missing and added to the ESM Express 6.91 media over the weekend.

Express is an appliance and not a blank slate HW server so a fresh install is not an option.

Vini,

While I understand the frustration, the gen7 appliances are close to their end of life and an in place upgrade would not provide significant benefit. Users - with the help of HPE - need to assess upgrade plans.

While mentioned in some other responses in this thread, it's worth reiterating: ESM Express 6.9.1 is now available for in place upgrade for existing Express 4.0 customers using AE-75xx (gen8) hardware.
