Upgrade to OS 8.1.3

I am currently on OS 7.1.19 and am planning my upgrade path to the best version of 8 sometime soon. In order to upgrade do I have to install the base 8 version or just download it?

Hello,

Just have it downloaded. That said, read up on the 8.1.x code train and make sure that is the one you want to be on.

Yeah by the time I do the upgrade i will probably go to the latest most stable version as recommended by PA, so it will probably be higher thatn 8.1.3

Yeah, 8.1.4 came out last week so its probably a good ideea to let it bake for a bit. Also I would recommend a read into the 8.0.x train just for comparison, unless there are features in 8.1.x you need/require.

My real concern with continuing to upgrade is disk space, I would think at some point I will run out.

Hello,

As a best practice, I usually only keep the base release, currently install, and previous installed. The other I delete to make sure I dont run out. If I recall you have some big numbered models and should have plenty of space. 

 

Since you are running 7.1.19, I would only have that version, 7.1.0, and hte previous 7.1.x version you upgraded from. Should give you plently of space for a 8.1.x migration.

 

Cheers!

I have a PA 5050 with that partition around 90% full and that is a good practice to delete old OS version I did that when I moved to 7, seems so long ago. Seems like there are alot of changes going to 8 that I can see so far in the documentation

I bet 8 doesn't work with GP 2.2 Some of my users won't get off of it
