Vintages for 5.5 - 7.X

Releases 5.5 - 7.X have minimum vintage requirements for a number of cards and applications. Here is a list of items that (if present in the system) must either be removed or updated to a minimum vintage as specified.

Note: This list may not represent an all inclusive list of cards and vintages, so check the General Release Bulletin (GRB) for the release about to be installed to verify all the requirements are met. Also, Nortel document NN43001-140 Product Compatibility Matrix should be used to verify minimum vintages and application interoperability levels. CallPilot must be at version 5 for Release 6 and above, so an upgrade will usually involve upgrading CallPilot too.
