* Systems with VMware hosts should not be upgraded from 7.3.0.x directly to 7.6.0.x due to the risk of experiencing unexpected node offline events during the upgrade which may lead to loss of host access. In order to upgrade to 7.6.0.x, these systems should first be upgraded to 7.4.0.x or 7.5.0.x. This restriction only applies to systems with VMware hosts and will be lifted in a future 7.6 PTF release.

** It is not currently possible to upgrade directly from V7.3.0.x, to V7.6.1.x or later. Please step through the latest V7.4.x or V7.5.x PTF.
