Notes on Roll-out:

    – These upgrades are estimated to take two to three months.
  • A banner with more details will be posted on the enterprise-hosted VMware SD-WAN Orchestrators at least one week prior to the scheduled upgrade.
    – This one-week interval is so that partners can notify their customers.
  • Partners with dedicated hosted Orchestrators can request upgrade to 4.0.0 after the completion of enterprise-hosted Orchestrator upgrades.
    – We will send another announcement at that time.
  • Customers with on-premise deployments should contact Support for assistance with their upgrade.
