Most of the clients in my env are centos 6.6 with ipa 3.0.0 client

are still running the older client software still work?

Yes older clients should be able to talk to newer masters.

        Hello All

        I am looking for some advice on upgrading. Currently our FreeIPA
        servers are
        3.0.0 on centos 6.6. We are looking to go to 4.2.3 Centos7. This
        upgrade path
        is not possible per IPA documentation. Minimum version required
        is 3.3.x. I
        have also found that cenos6 does not provide anything past 3.0.0.

    And it won't. There are no plans in updating FreeIPA version in
    RHEL/CentOS-6.x, we encourage people who want the new features to
    migrate to RHEL-7.x:



    If you want to wait on CentOS-7.2, it should be in works now:

        One idea is to upgrade to 3.3.x first and then upgrade to 4.2.3
        on centos7.
        This is harder since centos does not provide this. The other
        issue is if
        3.0/3.3 client will be supported with 4.2.3 server.

    The right way is to migrate via creating replicas in RHEL/CentOS-7.x
    and slowly deprecating RHEL/CentOS-6 ones. Detailed procedure in the
    links above.
