    Looking for feedback/recommendations. Pressed for time to get our instance upgraded and migrated to AWS. While I have a ton of experience with AWS I am relatively new to ClearPass administration.

    Our onprem (VMWare) ClearPass environment has stagnated for some time, we are currently on 6.7.0. I am led to believe we can follow the upgrade path detailed below to get to the latest and greatest in AWS.

    1.       Upgrade Onprem 6.7.0 -> 6.7.14

    2.       Export backups

    3.       Import to AWS 6.9 Instance

    4.       Upgrade to 6.9.13

    5.       Export backups

    6.       Import to AWS 6.11 Instance

    7.    Upgrade to 6.11.4

    Any experience with a similar migration path?

    Looks like a plan, assuming you checked the release notes for ClearPass 6.9 and that supports upgrade from 6.7.14.

    You could also check with Aruba TAC to validate this if you need more confidence.
