    Hello,

     

    at first it will be great if you will share current FOS version and target FOS which you would like to achive.

    Second thing is which OS type on host are you using?

    Hello,

     

    if you would like to do upgrade non-disruptively you have to go over steps in table abellow.

    Pay attention that from FOS 7.4.x the MAPS will be automatically enabled so if you would like to keep your Fabric Watch tresholds you have to convert it before upgrade.

     

    7.0.* >> 7.1.*   >> 7.2.*  >> 7.3.*  >> 7.4.*   >>8.0.*   >> 8.1.*
