Hello Airheads Community,
I have an Aruba 6000 controller that runs ArubaOS 126.96.36.199 and planning to update it to the new supported version. While I do this, which ArubaOS version should I choose. I wonder if the new version software will slow down the controller or if it effects the stability and manageability. Which ArubaOS version is best for this controller. What path should I follow to upgrade?

The 6000 controller (or M3) is end of sale:
Depending on the model of your supervisor card, the last ArubaOS version you can install is 5.0.x.x (for Supervisor I or II), or 6.4.x.x (for M3).
Aruba OS 5.0 is end-of-support; ArubaOS 6.4 will be officially supported for another 4-5 years (see exact date in the link above).
Read the release notes for the software you will be installing on any limitations. There are quite some customers still running 6.4 on M3 modules. If you have further questions, reach out to your Aruba partner or Aruba Sales team.
If you have urgent issues, please contact your Aruba partner or Aruba TAC.

Thank you for prompt reply and advices. We use Aruba 6000 with Supervisor II. Currently running 188.8.131.52. Probably, we choose 184.108.40.206.
The reason for the update, occasionally, some of clients that connected APs are having connectivity problem. After restarting the controller, everyhtings works well.
