Upgrading Older OnSSI Verion

I have a couple of servers running NetDVMS 6.5g. OnSSI support advised and gave me the link that I needed to upgrade to RC-C 7.0 (and in doing this I will only be four upgrades behind).

My question is: should I attempt this upgrade on my own with my IT department, or should I bring in an OnSSI reseller tech to do it for me? I am more than willing to DIY this, but I don't want to screw anything up.

Anyone who can impart any wisdom (or horror stories) on the subject will be appreciated...
