Disclaimer: This is not a recommended approach to perform an upgrade. The SDL recommendation is to do Content Manager First.
In this approach, the Content Delivery module along with the application will be upgrade first to the latest version while keeping the Content Manager and other add-ons intact.
The old Content Manager then publish to the new, updated Content Delivery.
The below sequence of diagram illustrates the Five Steps approach:
- Additional efforts for setting up the Publishing Target and Topology Manager both
- Risk of failures and down-times
- Repeated quality analysis
