we create ArcGIS Enteprise 10.5 using ArcGIS Enterprise 10.5 Azure cloud builder. We want to upgrade it to 10.6.  I think I cannot upgrade Enterprise from 10.5 to 10.6 using the builder (I think this is available from 10.5.1) If I need to do the upgrade and I cannot use azure builder because my version is 10.5. How can I do the upgrade?

Can I follow these steps

  1. Upgrade Portal for ArcGIS
  2. Upgrade ArcGIS Web Adaptor (for Portal)
  3. Upgrade ArcGIS Server (upgrade hosting server first, then any other servers)
  4. Upgrade ArcGIS Web Adaptor (for Server)
  5. ArcGIS Data Store (upgrade primary first, then stand-by

Or how do I need to do the upgrade if I used the Azure builder for 10.5?

Thanks for your help!

Good afternoon, this should work for you to do your upgrade.  I did my upgrade earlier this summer and this procedure worked smoothly.  Thank you.
