We are in transition to 3.5 on our original GPFS installation.  Two of
four servers are now at GPFS 3.4.XX/CentOS 6.4.  Two servers are still
at 3.3.YY/CentOS 5.4.  The compute nodes are all to 3.4.XX/CentOS 6.4.

The data center is remotely located and it is a pain to get physical
access.  Once we get the last two nodes upgraded, we expect to go to
GPFS 3.5 fairly quickly (we already have 3.5 running on a newer GPFS

My understanding is that you need to step through 3.4 during a
migration from 3.3 to 3.5.

I've never been lost; I was once bewildered for three days, but never lost!
