Your steps are the basic outline. The detailed steps can be found in KB81538. I created to assist with upgrading from 6.x to 7.1 but the same steps apply for 7.0.x to 7.1.x.

Two notes:

Be sure to backup ePO following KB66616 prior to upgrading both the extensions and ePO.

ePO 4.8.x goes end of support at the end of the year. It may be a good time to also plan an upgrade to ePO 5.1 or 5.2 after the upgrade MDE 7.1.x.

Thank you for your response and KB81538 is helpful.  Do I have to upgrade clients tp DE 7.1.X before I upgrade epo to 5.1 or 5.2?

There is no requirement that the clients be upgraded to MDE 7.1 immediately. I would upgrade the ePO server first as I always like to test upgrades of client software for a week or two on several systems prior to mass deployment.

Thank you jhall2. We will most likely go from 4.6.6 to 5.1.1 and upgrade clients on later date.

I will try to remember and post the results here when I am done.

Upgraded from 4.6.6 directly to 5.1.1. It took 36 hours because of the database size.. but it is done!!

Now on to migrating clients to a new ePO server.
