upgrading ePO 4.5 Patch 3 to ePO 4.6.1

Can we upgrade ePo4.5 Patch 3 directly to ePO4.6.1

I've read a few forum posts where people are saying you need patch 4 as a minimum, is this correct?

The ePO_46P1_release_notes.pdf says Patch 3 (build937) minimum

On a general note, will all my policies and task that we currently have with ePO 4.5 work ok

we are currently running;

VSE 8.7 RP4 with hotfix 5

McAfee Agent 4.5 Patch 2

Groupshield 7.0.1

We have 7 Agent Handlers and 12 Repositories

Ours is a pretty cut down install, we dont use RSD or any of that jazz.

As long as your Patch 3 and above you "Should" be ok.  Policies and tasks "should" be ok as well.

Make sure you backup your database and epo server prior to upgrading.
