Upgrading IAP Cluster from version 6.5 to 8.3

Hi there,

 

Can I upgrade my IAP cluster from version 6.6 to 8 just from the VC. If so what is the process?

 

Look forward to reply

Thanks

The Instant 8.3 release notes do a good job covering the different upgrade scenarios. Take a look there for a start.

Upgrade options will depend on whether your cluster is a single AP model or mixed.

Hello and thanks for this post! 

 

I have a simple doubt concern the IAP 205. I have a great an old customer using the 205 but now they need more APs. As the 205 is EOS I´m offering the 305, but I believe the 205 doesn´t support version 8 correct? I have a second plan to combine all APs using a controller 7000 series and version 8. What Do you think about?

 

Thanks,

205 is not end of support product, we have support till 2023 but it support OS version till 6.5 code only, we can not upgrade to 8.x version.

Hello Pavan,

 

Thanks for your information and fast response! Sorry about the missunderstand but When I told EOS I was talking about End Of Sales. 

 

Best regards!

for the 305, you do not have to go to 8.x. You can run both AP's with 6.5.4.12 (which is the current latest Version for 6.x). 

I have a customer running both AP's with an even older version of 6.x.
