Avaya IPo 500 V2 upgrade from 7.0.2 to 9.1

Avaya IPo 500 V2 upgrade from 7.0.2 to 9.1

Avaya IPo 500 V2 upgrade from 7.0.2 to 9.1

we are installing a fresh IPo500 V2 to s new site, the control unit is remarketed, wiped and has firmware V7.0.2 with a BRi combo card installed.
The remarketer has provided new licence keys for 4x endpoint phones and 1x upgrade licence key (i'm assuming this is essentials) and a IPO Admin9-1-10-0-192.exe (im assuming this is IPo Manager) file for install.
They say we can upgrade the unit to F/W 9.1 using the Admin.exe file and the 9.1 BIN files are included in it.
Im having doubts that this is the case and as far as I was aware upgrading from 7.0 to 9.1 involved a multi step upgrade as I think - 7.0 to 8.1 to 9.0 then 9.1

this is a clean system that has never been configured so saving configs is not an issue and the install will be 4x handsets and an ISDN 2e dual channel line so im assuming config from scratch shouldn't be that difficult anyway once the firmware and licences are in place.

any advice would be very much appreciated

7 to EITHER 8.1 or 9 (to increase bootloader space), then to 9.1.

If your R7 unit has a virtual essential license, it is either highly recommended that you get a real license. If you don't, a hardware failure and a required replacement of the IP500V2 chassis will force you through the install/upgrade steps to recreate the virtual essential license, which you don't want to do if it's broken, trust me.

Thanks Greybeard191!
I thought the UG had to be stepped, thanks for confirming.
The R7 unit we have is blank (no config) , it has been recently supplied to us by a used equipment supplier and has never been installed I dont think it has any licences on it at all and not certain if it has a virtual essential lic? how would I check?
