Starting with release 5.13, GigaVUE-FM introduces several significant changes, which include improvements in usability and performance. These changes include upgrading and replacing databases and changing the underlying operating system. So, you must migrate your existing configurations and data such as audit logs, events, syslogs, and statistics from your current GigaVUE-FM version (either 5.7 or lower) to GigaVUE-FM 5.13. You cannot directly upgrade your GigaVUE-FM instance to release 5.13. You must first upgrade to GigaVUE-FM, a special release that provides the tools to manage and perform the migration. You can then upgrade to GigaVUE-FM 5.13. For details about migrating your GigaVUE-FM instance on AWS platform, refer to the GigaVUE-FM Migration Guide.
