    We have an old never been touched since the dawn of time Airwave  server running trhat I'd like to upgrade to the latest and greatest.

    8.2.3 -> 8.2.12 seems a big jump at one time, especially as 8.2.3 gets you to root and not the restricted shell..

    Is there a recommended upgrade path with interim builds in there ?

    You will need to go to first so the DB scheme can change. This also prepares the system to go to CentOS 7. Once you upgrade to, take a backup of airwave. Once you have your backup you will need to deploy a new VM of from, or download the ISO from, and format/reinstall if your running on hardware. Once you restore from backup on, you can go ahead and upgrade to 8.2.12.x

    We can follow the below upgrade path. >> >> >> >> (CenTOS& install and backup restore ) >> >>

    We can also refer to the release note which will have the path mentioned.
