I've seen Amitay's answer and I'll provide a compatible one...  :-)

A couple of months ago I made an attempt at documenting an upgrade


So, the rolling upgrades that are disallowed by Amitay's changes are
not expected to work because ctdbd (or even smbd) might have
incompatible changes.

However, if you have carefully tested a particular upgrade path with
the tunable enabled then you will know whether it will work...  ;-)

peace & happiness,
