I have Puppet server 2.6.4 version manually installed using rpm. I want to safely upgrade it to latest 3.6 version by installing Puppetlabs repo. Same way Puppet clients are installed manually using rpm. How can I rollback to current version if something breaks or Backup Current Installation ?

I'm not sure 3.6.x master would even be compatible with 2.6.x clients (or vice versa). However, if you can manage to resolve the dependency chain needed to go from 2.6.4 to 3.6.x, you should be able to roll back if needed using the same RPMS (using YUM for this is immensely helpful).

A bigger issue to consider is that Puppet 2.6.x code will almost definitely break or misbehave on 3.6, so lots and lots of testing is in order.

We have tested. It worked well.
