      No probs. If you have extra time, take separate human-readable backups of ASM policies (export policy as XML). If you load config from a UCS on a new major version, considerable amount of configuration in your ASM policies may change without your consent.

       

      I found that some new Blocking Settings are enforced by default. Also make sure your signature update revisions match 1-to-1 before you load your configuration, otherwise a bunch of signature configurations will change as well.
