Upgrade path from IDM 3.61 to 4.7

Does anyone know what the steps are to go from 3.61 to 4.7

I can't seem to find anything that goes back that far.

Officially the route is to do a few upgrades, probably 3.6 to 4.0, or
maybe 4.5, and then 4.5 to 4.6 (or maybe 4.7). In reality it depends on
your environment and your willingness to try undocumented things. I've
done upgrades from 3.6 to 4.7 directly when it was just the engine and
drivers, no "Identity applications" (e.g. the UserApp), and it worked out.
Keep in mind that as part of this you are also upgrading the operating
system (OS) since 3.6 and 4.7 don't have any common supported OS's, and
eDirectory must also be upgraded from 8.x to 9.1 or later. As a result, I
built a new box, installed eDirectory and IDM on it (in a temporary tree),
and then moved the DIB over and, when ready, ran 'ndsconfig upgrade' (to
upgrade the DIB) and the idm-install-schema script (to install new IDM
schema). I think that was basically it; there is a thread in the
eDirectory forums talking about this in more detail with link to TID#
7012029 which may help too.

Good luck.
