Upgrading from 6.2 to 8.2

Jump to solution

The included documentation states that you can only upgrade to 8.2 from 7.2, no earlier, but I've successfgully upgraded from 6.2 without issue.  Does anyone know what the issue is with upgrading from anything prior to 7.2?

Thanks

I have also performed a direct 6.2 to 8.3 upgrade without issue.

It's possible HP just didn't test this step so formally it didn't clear QA. Doesn't mean it wont work though.

Did you perform more than one schema upgrade on the database?

No, just the one repair after the schema upgrade from 6.2 to 8.2. All seems fine so I'm curious why a stepped upgrade is required.

Thanks Grundy.  That's the feeling I was getting as well, but I wanted to be sure.  I wouldn't want any surprises down the road.
