Issue/Introduction

We plan on upgrading to DX NetOps 21.2.1. We plan on doing this out of sync with our Spectrum team. They are not going to upgrade at the same time. 

Do we need to disable Spectrum as a data source before we start the upgrade? Does the Spectrum team need to disable Event Polling prior to the upgrade?

Environment

DX NetOps 21.2.1

Resolution

The integration between Spectrum and Performance Management will still continue to work but that being said, it is not something you want to delay for a long time.  As for needing to disable the Spectrum data source and turn off event polling, that is not necessary.
