Force Downgrade a Server (SE R11)

Force Downgrade a Server (SE R11)

Force Downgrade a Server (SE R11)

Hello all,

So we had an issue with an upgrade on a system that also had back end issues in the VMware Data Center.

Anyway, I would like to downgrade a test server we have running (All R11.1 Major Release) and then run the upgrade again. Is there a way to force the server to accept the lesser version and "Upgrade / Downgrade"?



RE: Force Downgrade a Server (SE R11)

If it is a test server and you are doing it in a virtual environment why down grade it? Spin up a new one and dump the config on it. Or maybe I am missing what you are really trying to do.

budbyrd: Hosted in 11:11 - I would have to purchase more resources.

I would like to downgrade to: R11. Build 23,

From: R11. Build 34
