Can we upgrade a search head from version 6.1 to 6.5 while indexers still use 6.1.2?

Hi,

Can we upgrade SH version of 6.1.2 to 6.5 while we are planning to continue other components (Indexer,Deployer) still on 6.1.2 versions?

I am looking at documentation, but didn't find a solution for this, can someone please suggest us?

Thanks

Hi splunker9999,
yes you can do it following the usual upgrade procedure, I did it (indexers 6.1.5 SH 6.5.0).
You only have to install the same Splunk version in the same server roles if you have a cluster.
Bye.

Yes, you can just upgrade the search head(s). The installation procedure is the same.
