    Hi all,
    I have a  cppm cluster running 6.7.13 that I'd like to upgrade to 6.9.5 (6.10 a bit too new)

    is it safe to upgrade directly to 6.9.5 or would it be better to upgrade  via a 6.8 release

    Best to check the Release Notes for such information:

    Direct upgrades to 6.9.0 are only supported from 6.8.x or 6.7.13 or from any hotfix applied to those versions, with some caveats as described in this section.

    For all other versions, direct upgrades are not supported. The specific patch update and upgrade paths described below must be followed instead.

    Before you proceed with any upgrade, you should always apply the latest available patch updates for your current release.

    Check the full release notes to check what is needed in your exact situation. Feel free to reach out to Aruba Support to get your upgrade plan verified, in case you are not fully confident.
