Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Upgrade

Skip-Level Upgrade

A skip-level, or multi-hop, upgrade updates your Production environment to an Identity Manager product version that is beyond the next major release from its current version. A skip-level upgrade typically requires a series of upgrades, but it is technically possible, and some customers find it feasible, to develop a single upgrade procedure that updates a target environment directly to the target Identity Manager version.

Note –

Chapter 6, Skip-Level Upgrade Considerations describes special considerations for a multi-hop upgrade. If you are uncertain about how to proceed, or if these considerations seem unclear to you, contact Sun Professional Services for assistance with planning and executing your upgrade.
