   Question:

     Can Management Modules (MM) be migrated and converted between different versions of APM? For example, can a 9.5 MM be migrated to an APM 10.0 Enterprise Manager (EM) through a conversion utility or a workaround? Or can a 10.0 MM be migrated to an APM 9.5 EM?

 

  Answer:

     APM only supports the migration of Management Modules (MM) from older versions of APM, to newer ones. So from the questions above, you can migrate a 9.5 MM  to a 10.0 Enterprise Manager (EM), but you cannot migrate a MM from a newer version to an older version.

     Between versions of APM, there are changes made to MM features and functionality. If an older version MM is detected by an EM it will automatically update the MM as it loads it for the first time, to the latest MM format. This is done automatically upon loading the MM, no manual process is needed to upgrade MMs from older versions of APM.
