SIM5.3 upgrade to 6.1 (should I step it up?)

Wondering if I should take 5.3 to 6.0 then 6.1 or just go directly to 6.1?

5.3 was solid.
6.0 has SNMP issues, and I couldn't get phone home or VCRM to work..


6.1... well... that's another story.

Thanks for the reply, will keep that in mind, perhaps one of the mirrored drives will be pulled prior to this effort. Holding for now.

Go for 6.1, I did !
There are a lot of good new features which it comes with. There is supposedly a backup and restore toolset you can download for all your settings when doing an upgrade.
I personally do a full rebuild and add devices with either host files or IP ranges. We have over 2000 devices across a dozen domains and dozens of subnets so I have got it down to a fine art now. I also have another identical box on another site for DR purposes.
