CB Server 5.0.1 vs 4.5.1

Can a newly deployed 5.0.1 Community Edition server join a cluster of a few 4.5.1 Community Editions servers?
If not, what steps are recommended to quietly migrate from the old one to the new one without losing the data?
Thanks for the future help,

It looks like upgrade from 4.5 to 5 is possible according to the upgrade matrix.

Start here:


Then explore the upgrading options (I don’t know what you consider “quiet” :slight_smile: - https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/install/upgrade-strategies.html

Hi @alex1, Yes, you can upgrade 4.5.1 cluster to 5.0.1 using the Online Rolling Upgrade strategy as @matthew.groves mentioned.
