Vontu/DLP 11.x upgrade to 12.x

Hello All!

I am preparing to upgrade our DLP platform from 11.x up to the latest and greatest version 12.5 that was released a few weeks ago. My question is regarding the incrememntal upgrades required to go from a 11.x version to a 12.x.

I know that I will need to upgrade my 11.x version to 12.0 prior to going up to 12.5 but I noticed that there was a release update for a version 12.0.1 in the package that I downloaded.

My question is:

Do I need to upgrade the DLP platform to the 12.0.1 prior to the 12.5 upgrade?


  1. 11.x to 12.0

  2. 12.0 to 12.0.1

  3. 12.0.1 to 12.5

Or can I skip the 12.0.1 release?


Kind regards.

Thanks for your reply James007.


The link you provided me with says that Vontu cannot skip major releases. I assume that it is safe to say that I can skip the 12.0.1 release on way path to the 12.5 upgrade.


Thanks for the information.
