Upgrade of RSA AM 8.3 to 8.5 P2
We are on RSA AM 8.3 P5 RSA Appliance and planning for upgrade. Currently we have 6 AM's
1 Primary and 5 replicas:
1. Can we upgrade hardware appliance from 8.3 p5 to 8.5 P2?
If answer is yes to 1st question
2. What will happen to users connected on Primary at the time of upgrade ? I presume they failover to available replicas.
If that happens after the upgrade we will be left over with
1 primary on 8.5(currently upgraded) and remaining 5 will be like (1 Primary and 4 replicas on v8.3 P5)
3.Now the question is, can 8.3.P5 and 8.5 coexist in one environment, I am trying to understand the behavior and strategize upgrade path with minimal downtime for thousands of users. Any documentation/insight on this is much appreciated.

Thanks for your input Gee.
To the above 2nd query, few more doubts.
1.Does this mean, we can upgrade 1 Primary and 5 replicas in "one change window" WITHOUT any downtime of users??
2.Do we upgrade first primary and then just replica instances to 8.5?? or do we need any switchover of instances before upgrades on replicas
3.Is there any documentation where I can find to upgrade running infrastructure? One primary and one replica upgrade should be fine.
