Upgrading Past FMC 7.0.1 With 5508 Firewalls

I have a Firepower Management Center HA Pair running 7.0.1. There are a couple of 5508 firewalls and I notices that the last code that is supported on them is 7.0.1. What is the process of continuing to upgrade the FMC. Can I upgrade the FMC to a later code and leave the 7.0.1 code on the 5508 firewalls? If so, is there a code where that would no longer be supported?

 

Thank you,

 

Alex

as long the upper version of FMC supports the Lower version device you ok to upgrade if the compatibility is not there. that is where the issue starts. then you need to uplift hardware too

@Alex Pfeil the release notes (below) states FMC 7.1 supports managing older versions as far back as 6.5, so you should be fine.
