Upgrading license slaves compatibility / license master (license manager) version

Hello,

Our test environment uses production LM and we never had any compatibility issue upgrading first test nodes :

6.2.3 > 6.5.2

6.5.2 > 7.1.4

7.1.4 > 7.3.4

We plan to upgrade 7.3.4 to 8.2.2, any possible issue?

In fact https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.2/Admin/Configurealicensemaster rather looks best practice and not a requirement.

Thanks

It shouldn't be an issue, but OTOH it shouldn't a problem upgrading the LM, either.

Thanks, other solution would be to ask support to split license and make test manager node as license master for test environment.
