  • After upgrading, ensure that you read the release notes for all versions that have come out after the version from which you are upgrading. In this way, you will know of all changes that might affect you.


When you publish your configuration after performing an upgrade, you might receive publishing errors that did not occur when you published the same configuration using previous FootPrints versions. This is because with every release, a number of validation checks are added that inform you about the incorrectly configured components during the upgrade.
