Introduction


It is recommended that all devices in your WAAS network should be running the same version of the WAAS software. If some of your WAAS devices are running different software versions, the WAAS Central Manager should be the lowest version. Upgrading to version 5.0, 5.1, or 5.2 is supported from certain older versions only. If you have a WAAS device that is running a version from which upgrading directly to version 5.0, 5.1, or 5.2 is not supported, first upgrade the device to the next highest supported intermediate version and then upgrade to the desired 5.0, 5.1, or 5.2 version.

Official Documentation State Something different in regard to the order of upgrade:

We recommend that all devices in your WAAS network should be running the same version of the WAAS software. If some of your WAAS devices are running different software versions, the WAAS Central Manager should be the highest version. For details on version interoperability limitations, see the Release Note for Cisco Wide Area Application Services.

 

WAAS version 5.4 is not supported running in a mixed version WAAS network where any WAAS device is running a software version lower than 4.3.1. If you have any WAAS devices running versions earlier than 4.3.1, you must first upgrade them to version 4.3.1 (or a later version) before you install version 5.2 on the Central Manager. Do not upgrade any device to a version later than the existing Central Manager version. After all devices are running version 4.3.1 or a later version, you can begin the upgrade to version 5.4.1 on the WAAS Central Manager. Directly upgrading a device from version 4.0, 4.1, or 4.2, to 5.4.1 is not supported.
