| I'm trying to find a document that covers upgrade procedure from 6.5 to 7.
Can someone please point me to right place?

We do not recommend upgrading from 6 to 7

Then this means that if we want a newer version we need to wipe out the hard drive and install everything from zero?

Yes, that is correct. There is no reliable method of upgrading from one major version to another (i.e. SL 6 ---> SL 7).
However updating from one minor version to the next (i.e. SL 6.7 ---> SL 6.8 or SL 7.1 ---> SL 7.2) is possible.

|It seems to be https://access.redhat.com/solutions/637583 for the Server Edition of RHEL6. It's even documented on that page and this https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/Migration_Planning_Guide/chap-Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-Migration_Planning_Guide-Upgrading.html. But then that's RHEL not SL|

|Yes, indeed. That is certainly the case.|
