Same here. I can't find any info on the 6.3.5-003 release.

A notification for these two releases will go out today.

I have both entries in the "Available Upgrades" listbox.

Should we upgrade first to
AsyncOS 6.1.5-110
and then to
AsyncOS 6.3.5-003

or can we upgrade directly from our
AsyncOS 6.1.0-307 to AsyncOS 6.3.5-003?

Is there any difference in this upgrade-path?
(I found something in the ReleaseNotes - Page 7 - but don't understand the term "Qualified Upgrade Paths". Is this the 'possible' upgrade-order or the 'forced' order?)

According to the release notes for 6.3.5-003 i don't think that updating directly from 6.1.0-307 would be much of a problem if you keep an eye on the pre-upgrade notes.

Even though I had to learn it the hard way because right now i am stucked with one of two machines at 6.1.5-110. The upgrade to 6.3.5-003 always stalls at 85% when installing the av-scanners.

AsyncOS will only give you the option of upgrades which we've tested and support, so if you're seeing AsyncOS 6.3.5-003 in the upgrade list then there's no problems with jumping directly to that version.

Of course, you should always read the release notes (available on the support portal) before doing any upgrades just in case there's something relevant to your environment in them.

Thank you (all) for the answers. To be sure, we have upgraded step-by-step. Everything is working fine now.

@Doc: It would be nice if IronPort could show the most important release notes (and of course the most relevant things to do BEFORE upgrade) if we click on the single upgrade version.
What do you think: Could this be something for future versions?
(Just a direct link to the matching release notes would be help too...)
