Question:
Normally in an APM installation the Enterprise Managers (EM) and TIM have needed to be at the same version. Is there any flexibility with APM 10.x to have a different version of EM and TIM and still be compatible?
Environment:
APM 10.2 + later releases
Answer:
The current 10.x TIM is backward compatible with the EM as far back as APM 10.2 e.g. EM 10.2 is compatible with TIM version 10.2 and higher.
 
Additional Information:
This backward compatibility allows installation of a later version TIM on supported VMTP 11.x releases while the EM remains at the current version e.g. in a APM 10.2 installation the 10.2 MTP TIM can be upgraded to 10.7 to allow installation on VMTP 11.01 or 11.0.2, while the EMs remain at 10.2.
