Description (partial)

No ability to upgrade PN 4.1/4.0 with 6.4 to 4.2 (6.5 OS)
In PN 4.2 Installation guide, Upgrading to Prime Network 4.2 from 4.0 and 4.1 (Pg no121), does not mention the Upgrade flow, when Upgrading a PN with 4.1 or 4.0  to PN 4.2  with RHEL 6.5 .

1) After taking the backup from 4.1pp4 PN (which was running in RHEL 6.4 ).
2) Same server, will be reimaged with RHEL 6.5. 
3) After that whether PN 4.2   has to be installaed in RHEL 6.5  or what will  be the prerequisite to upgrade PN 4.2 from PN 4.0/4.1 in RHEL 6.5. 
4) The upgrade instructions exist in the install guide do not take into consideration the need to have a clean 6.5 server- which ends in non existence PN user. This cause us to be stuck in step #4 in the upgrade flow:
Step 4 Give the Prime_Network_upgrade directory and its contents pn user: pn group owner permissions:
chown - R pnuser: pn group directory name
