    VVD 5.0 upgrade path

    SuparTed Lurker

      Hi everyone. I noticed VVD 5.0 is general available.

      However the upgrade documentation is not (yet) available. Is VVD 4.3 the only valid version for upgrade to VVD 5.0?

       

      Best regards,

      Ted

          Hi Ted,

           

          The upgrade guidance for VMware Validated Design 5.0 is being authored and will be shipped as an add-on. We typically don't sim-ship the upgrade guidance at GA, but 4.3 was an exception.

           

          The guidance is a day-two operation that accounts for version-to-version without skip-level upgrades. We do this to account for a) smallest upgrades possible with consistent interoperability in rolling upgrades and b) any delta changes to the products and/or overall SDDC architecture.

          Currently Installed Version
