Recommended OS

We are currently running 6.4r4.1 on our SA-4500 which has been very stable. I am debating whether to go to 6.5 or 7.0. Any thoughts or concerns with upgrading to one vs. the other?

Re: Recommended OS

The recommended release is still 6.5.

I've noticed that Juniper is often slow when it comes to getting their recommended release in-line with the latest code trains. 7.0 is now at R4, so I would think it's mostly stable by now.

What I usually recommend is that if there is a feature in 7.0 that you really need, then you will probably be OK since like I said, they're up to R4 now. However, if you don't need any of the shiny-fancy-whiz-bang stuff in 7.0, it's usually best to stick with the recommended release.

I'm running 6.5 in production on a HA pair of SA-4500s, and I have a testing environment running 7.0.
