We are currently on version 3.1.4. I assume running these commands will get us on version 4.1.3 without issue? Thanks!

Hi Spiffster,

Nice to see you here. Actually there will be a license issue, since the v.3 licenses are not compatible with v.4. We'll need to issue new keys. Please see more details in my email.
