Hi, thanks for this information Rob.

Yet, can't we rebuild a new DC with the current C* version, upgrade it to the new major once it is fully part of the C* cluster, and then switch all the clients to the new DC once we are sure everything is ok and shut down the old one ?

I mean, on a multiDC setup, while upgrading, there must be a moment that 2 DCs haven't the same major version, this is probably supported.

With this process, won't I get rid of potential issue ?

Since we use AWS EC2 instances, Is it possible to upgrade Cassandra through a new DC as it is recommended while switching to vnodes ?

No, because bootstrapping (and rebuilding/repairing/etc.) on a split-major-version cluster is not supported.
