Hi Pamuditha,
Downgrade is only possible by activating a cluster backup.

Hi Martin,
Can you kindly explain it a bit more. I didn't get that?
How it becomes possible by activating cluster backup? To have that we need multiple clusters
Right?

Thanks

Pamuditha, it is recommended to backup the vSZ cluster (even if you have only one instance)before upgrading to newer version.
then, if you want to downgrade, you can select your previous backup with older version and get back to it.
I've made the same an hour ago.

Hi Alexander,
Thanks for the valuable advice here.
1 additional question. Do we need to upgrade from Leader node or any using any node is ok?

Thanks.

Also with your experience how much time will it take to complete the upgrade roughly?

Thanks
