Upgrades versus replication


Hi all,


I’m helping out across a couple of sites which have replication, and I’m wondering about coordinating server upgrades.


I’m sure that this page http://www.jfrog.com/confluence/display/RTF/Repository+Replication or one like it used to contain a warning saying that, if you try to replicate between servers which are at different Artifactory versions, you risk getting corrupt data or other undefined behaviour.  However, it doesn’t seem to say that now.


·         Does it say it somewhere else?  I couldn’t find it with a quick search.

·         If it used to be true, but now it’s not (e.g., because replication just fails when it would be unsafe, or is always safe across versions), then at which version did that happen?  I’d want to make sure everyone’s on at least that version!

·         If it’s still true, then

o   please document it prominently on that page! … and

o   is there some easy way to turn off all incoming & outgoing replication on each server, while you coordinate upgrades?
