Hi there,

This KB Document outlines your options, you can go directly from 5.0 to 6 so this shouldn't be too much of a problem, just make sure the hardware is on the HCL.

In my experience Update Manager is by far the easiest way to do the upgrade if you have the facility, if not the CD/USB/ISO mount option works just as well.

Good luck

Hi,

now i preparing vm with update manager, i download customized images from Fujitsu. 5.1, 5.5 and 6.0.

I think, that best and secure way is upgrade to 5.1 > 5.5 > 6.0 Smiley Happy

btw your link is not working: An error has occurred.
