I am planning to upgrade Prime Collaboration Provisioning (PCP) from 12.2.659 to the latest version 12.6SU2 as per the CSR 12.5 (as part of the entire collaboration upgrade). I understood from the upgrade guides that it involves upgrade from 12.2 to 12.4, migrate 12.4 to 12.5, upgrade 12.5 to 12.6SU2. As a first step, I will upgrade from 12.2 to 12.4.
1. Do we need to get and install new licenses at each stage of the entire upgrade process? The major version stays at 12 and as I understand traditional licenses are still supported. (License details attached)
2. Will I break PCP if I upgrade ESXi to 6.5 prior to the PCP upgrade from 12.2? (As per virtualization, PCP 12.2 supports up to ESXi 6.0 on C240M4SX but supports 6.5 on M5. Mine is M4 hardware)
Thanks and regards,
