Hi Edward-

Thank you for this! This documentation is helpful.

One question, is there an "upgrade" guide available to illustrate how to upgrade from 3.2 to 5.0.x? A quick search points to some Juniper documentation for an ISSU upgrade process from previous versions of TF to 5.0.x, so I'm wondering if there is a TF equivalent.

If not, I would interested in working with the appropriate stakeholders to support such an effort to produce this documentation for the community. Per the message below, it looks like there is some work to be done to iron out 5.0.1 deployment details.

Thanks in advance. Looking forward to your response/guidance.

Hi Darien,

As far as I know, there is no such solution to upgrade from R3.x to R5.x.

R5.x is so different from R3.x, both deployment and runtime binaries. Also R5.x requires docker engine on all nodes whereas R3.x nodes don't have that, not to mention all services in R3.x are transformed to micro-services.

ISSU upgrade from R5.x to another R5.x is more doable, especially under HA mode.

cheers,
Edward
