I am reading the Replication 15.7 upgrade manuals. To upgrade replication server with ERSSD from 15.5 to 15.7 how is the ASA upgrade typically handled? Documents mention about upgrading "RSSD" which is fine and can be done using rs_init. Does installation for RS 15.7 handle ASA upgrade in any way or it has to be done separately prior to or after RSSD upgrade?
Documents mention ASA to be at version 12 for 15.7(?mandatory), if ASA at 11, what can be done to upgrade to ASA 12 and where do we get ASA 12? If we install new RS 15.7 with ERSSD then RS automatically uses ASA 12(so is it bundled with RS 15.7 software?). Can we leave ASA at 11 any potential impact?
Also, does anyone know, if RS 15.5 is upgraded to 15.7 are there any changes to the stable queues ? Would restore of ERRSD DB backup and 15.5 binaries for ASA 11 will be good enough to restore back to 15.5 (not going too much in details of other related tasks...)?
