Question:
Can I Mix DevTest Component Versions?
Environment:
All DevTest supported versions and platforms.
Answer:
It is not permitted to run mixed versions of the major components of DevTest – that is, the Registry, Portal, Broker, Coordinator, Simulator, Virtual Service Environment and Workstation must all be at the same release.

It is, however, permitted to connect to an Enterprise Dashboard that is of a later version than the other components, for instance

·         Connecting a Registry from version 9.5.1 to an Enterprise Dashboard from 10.3.0 is permitted since the Enterprise Dashboard is of a later version than the connecting registry

·         Connecting a 10.3.0 Registry to a 9.1 Enterprise Dashboard is not permitted since the Enterprise Dashboard is of an earlier version than the connecting registry

 
It is therefore recommended that the Enterprise Dashboard be the first component to be addressed during an upgrade.
