Support 
HP supports each SPP version for 12 months from the release date. Customers may choose to update to the current SPP from a previous SPP version. This is acceptable as long as the earlier version is within current version’s 12 month support period. This means that customers may directly update their SPP by skipping intermediate releases within the 12 month support period. See the table in the Compatibility section for details on the components contained in earlier SPPs that can migrate to this SPP.
The end of a support period can be determined by the version number of the release. For example, if SPP 2014.02.0 is currently installed, support for it would end the last day of February, 2015. This is based on version 2014=year, 02= month, 0=full release id number. Sometimes it is necessary to release an SPP with a version that would have less than 12 months of support per the information noted above. In these cases, use the table below to determine support periods:
