I'm fairly new to the Aruba world and I have recently 'inherited' an A200 running 18.104.22.168 that had several AP-93's bought for it. Long story short, it was discovered the 93's wouldn't provision without first upgrading the controller to more recent code (suggested 22.214.171.124 as apparently the 200's cannot run release 6 or higher).
I am wondering what the best course of action would be in upgrading, as I'm a little nervous about just hitting the controller with 126.96.36.199 straight up.
Would it be best to incrementally upgrade to 4.something first (or 3.something) and do the upgrade in a 2 or 3 step process, and if so, would anyone have suggestions which versions would allow for the safest "stepped approach"?

Great news! There is no 4.x!
Upgrade to 188.8.131.52 at will!

I am going to throw some caution out here. While I agree a direct upgrade should work the release notes actually hint at upgrade from 3.1 to 3.3 before making the jump directly to 5.0. I strongly suggest you pull down the 184.108.40.206 Release Notes and read the section titled Upgrade Procedures.

The release notes do say -
"If you are upgrading from a release older than RN-3.1.4, you must upgrade to the most recent RN build that
is available on the support site. Once your RN release is current, you can upgrade to ArubaOS 5.0."
I figure this is probably the safest approach, although as suggested, going straight to 5.x would probably work, but considering I have only just inherited the kit, I should probably take the "softly softly" approach - just in case.
