    Posted Mar 12, 2021 02:32 AM
    Hi, i got a requirement to upgrade an IAP cluster consisting of different AP types from OS 6 to OS 8 (8.6 to be exact). Will the configuration be reset if i upgrade it (like in controller), or will the configuration from OS 6 carry over?

    Thank you

    The configuration will carry over. AOSv6 to AOSv8 upgrades on controllers clear the configuration.

    Thank you for the answer! Can we upgrade different type of IAP at once? (For example, 315, 305, 505 in a cluster)

    Yes. In the software maintenance section you will supply the IAP software for each model. Certain models have the same version but different software builds. The software will be put on one of each model as a "seed", and the other APs of that type will get their software from that AP. 


    Always backup configurations before upgrades.
