Test Global Protect before deployment

We are currently running Global Protect 3.1.6 on PAN-OS 7.1.14 (we're a little behind) and I am wondering if it possible to test a newer version of GP before deploying company-wide.  I am new to the company and there is some concern that has lingered from upgrades that were performed in the past regarding conflicts with existing software running for certain groups.


Thank you for any insight you may have!

Download the software from the support portal and install it to a single machine and run your tests, as long as you don't install the actual agent bundle to the firewall you should be perfectly fine.
