Upgrading from Release 5.1.1 or Lower-Numbered Releases to Release 6.x.x or Higher-Numbered Releases

Release 5.1.1 or lower-numbered releases support application images only up to 172 MB. To install larger application images for Release 6.0.0 and higher-numbered releases, you must first install Release 5.1.2 (or a higher-numbered 5.x.x release). This enables the system to support application images greater than 172 MB. For example, you cannot go from Release 5.1.1 to Release 7.2.0 without first upgrading to Release 5.1.2. See the following table for compatibility of releases.
