suppose I've created a dSource that links a source server running os version 1.x and db version 1.x and from that dSource I've provisioned a couple of vDB, on target hosts of course also 1.x; in other words my target servers host both rights operating systems and db binaries, the same as the real source server.

Suppose now that I've upgraded my original production source to os version 2.x and db version 2.x, the link with dSource will pull new data from source...
...but my target environments are still running os and db of the old version. This could avoid the instance functionalities.

Is there a way to have all aligned at the same versions?
